    Flytraps will be very difficult for you to grow in your climate. I've been to Mexico several times, including in the winter/dry season, so I know just how scarce rain is. If you can install a rain barrel on hour house/apartment. Stocking up on water in the wet season makes the dry season much easier to manage.

    You may want to try some local Pinguicula. They'll be very easy to grow in your area since they're used to the climate.

    Well... Status update:
    The Dionaea was discarded today... Dried down to the underground stem... Judging from the lack of, well, any roots, I'd say it had just been recently passed to the ground from a petri dish...
    Now...
    I just realizad that no one seems to know what in the world "peat moss" is... For example:

    Left: the Dionaea and Binata's substrate... Rigth: a part of what they say in the garden store is "peat moss"...

    I'll have to order it online with some perlite...
    Now, as for the survivor:


    Small... Very small, but at least it's green...
    Last nigth it rained... I collected about half a litre... Apparently tonigth's gonna rain again... I'll place more buckets...

    Yikes, hopefully it will recover. The media it's in looks like it could be too compacted IMO and definitely needs to be wetter. That being said the stuff on the right looks really dark if it is dry.

    Are the pots allowed to drain?

    Is there any source around you for bottled RO or distilled water? While not free like rain water it would be easier and less dependent on the weather.

    Also, is there still a noticeable growing point?

    I just watered... And I knew there was something funny about that substrate
    I'm checking prices for the perlite and actual peat moss... Repoting will have to wait a bit more...
