    working hard trying to keep it alive??

    Good morning to all!! I got a vft that is not dead but not growing to good at all? The new traps on them will be black so thought maybe giving it to much humidity so gave it less humidity... got it in the sun on the window sill right now? due to its still to chilly for it here in Ohio.. but its just not working so what am I doing wrong here? I am a newbie but it hurts when you try so hard and then lose it..Hope someone can help me out here?

    Don't worry too much about what kind of light it gets. Worry that it gets a lot of light. Put it under some cool fluorescent bulbs for the whole day. Humidity is the least of your worries right now. Also, check the Venus flytrap section of this website. It has all you need to know. Most of my flytrap knowledge actually comes from this site, created by Professor Barry Rice! It's very informative and I'm sure you'll find it useful!

    You're very welcome, and don't worry about being new. After all, each of us once was new!

    I noticed we need steady warm weather to see our VFTs really take off. Right now seems to be the time I will have a VFT die on me. I think it has to do with the crazy weather we have. I'd put it in a sunny window and forget about the lights. With me less TLC is better
