Hey everyone. It's been years since I last posted here...I think.
Anyway, I'm sure your all very tired from hearing the same thing, but hear me out:
I've always wanted a venus flytrap, but I never had the guts to purchase one. I always thought it'd be quite tedious to own one since I live in the tropics here in Puerto Rico. From what I remember these plants require damp soil and bright sunlight. The average temp. can be from 70-100 degrees Fahrenheit (cool cuz' here in Puerto Rico temp. easily rises to a 90 on an average day). Problem is that it's very difficult to maintain a damp soil here in the island since the sun is so merciless. I also read that they hibernate or go into some sort of dormant state on winter. We don't have cold winters here in Puerto Rico, so can I just pop it into the fridge? I have a book that says that they need temperatures from 35-50 degrees Fahrenheit. Fill me in on the details. I really want one of these little wonders.
