    Are you talking normal tissues? Like for your nose?

    If so, that probably wasn't the best idea. They will probably deteriorate eventually from the constant water.

    You probably just aren't giving it enough time. The capillary action (movement of water through the soil) can sometimes take awhile. Just leave the plant in a bowl of water and come back in an hour or two.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    Dionea can take as much water as you give them, as long as it be RO, Distilled or rainwater.

    1. Get any old pot with normal drainage holes

    2. Fill pot with sphagnum moss peat

    3. Sit in a tray of rain water

    4. Sow seeds

    5. Wait

    6. Top up water tray whenever it runs out

    The peat will suck up with water, but it may take 24 hours if the peat is dry.

    Bear in mind that VFT seeds bought in shops rarely germinate - they become unviable after 100 days or so. You'd be better off just buying an adult plant.

    P.S. no need for a capital letter at the beginning of every single word!
