    I just bought a venus flytrap and I've got some questions. Now, I do have the plant in a bowl of distilled water. But, it is getting droopy. I do have it in sun for about 3 hours out of the day because thats all the sun that we get. I dont know if its supposed to be droopy or standing upright. ALso, it doesnt do a very good job catching flies..is this normal?

    Any advice would be helpful!!!

    Thanks!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]

    Is the plant just in water, no soil or sphagnum? Yuo might want to get it into a soil mix if it is not.

    It also might be transplant shock if it has just been bought. It might just perk up in a few days to weeks (depending on how different its new conditions are than what it was used to.)

    Good luck!

    Hi

    I am just moving this to the VFT forum where it might get some more replies.
