Hello, i just bought a vft yesterday, its a purple pitcher plant.
It came with a tiny paper basically explaining how it lures bugs. It mentions to leave the cover on when its not eating.
And mentions not to give it direct sunlight. But reading these forums, it mentions to take its cover off and have it in direct sunlight...As well for feeding... Will it eat on its own. Or will i have to supply it with dead flys & mosquitoes?? Is it good to take the venus fly trap travelling? i'm going to the lake in a couple of days. The bugs and the weather should be good for it right??
Any answers will help! thanks
