In the condition the plant is in at the moment it is incapable of catching and digesting any insects. Get the basics right first, light and water and don't give it any more dried mealworms.

ok, yeah that was kinda of a joke anyways, btw do all cp have to sit in water?
Surprisingly, a lot of sellers (especially places like Lowe's or local garden centers) don't know even basic care for carnivorous plants! That's why places like TerraForums exist.
Some CPs like to sit in water, and others don't. The majority don't have that much of a preference, and putting it in a tray is just more convenient than carefully top watering it all the time without pouring water all over the plant.
Don't worry about finding a place where bugs can find the plant; it really doesn't matter. A well lit, sunny place is the first priority. After you get it in good conditions, your D. spatulata will grow like a weed, and you'll get to post nice pictures of it everywhere.
Also, this is kind of late, but welcome to the community!
