How regularly should I make sure my Venus Flytrap has a bug to catch? A couple of nights ago there was a big moth on the windowsil, so I brought Diana out and held held her over the moth with the trap ready to close... and CHOMP!
Then just now there was a huge housefly buzzing about in my room, so I closed the door so it couldn't escape, and got a glass and (after several attempts) contained the fly after it had landed... and held the glass over another trap. After a few minutes the fly walked into the trap and CHOMP!
But I have no idea how much they should have to catch. Fortunately it's summer in New Zealand so Plant Food is flying around in abundance.
But I'm also thinking about what will happen in the winter, when there aren't really any flies around for her... would she die without enough food, so should I make sure she has plenty to eat now, or let her have an average of one bug a week...?
