I got various venus fly traps about seven months ago. They came through the mail in Sept. in healthy condition. I bought a Brita pitcher and have been using that water all this time. The plants seem to be doing okay. I have a dente, a common, and a green dragon.
Are they getting sick? Should they have gotten sick by the water by now? They were kinda sluggish recently but I figured it was because of the dormancy stage. Now, they've begun to grow again. Only this time, the green dragon's leaves are very long with healthy, open traps, the dentes seem pretty healthy, too, and the common plant has huge, stubby leaves with small traps. Again, I figured it was due to the dormancy stage (and it's still about 50f out right now). Is the water hurting them? Each plant has at least seven sprouting leaves with traps and the soil for each plant seems to have a light green-like moss lightly growing (I've sprayed them all with fungicide). So, the question is, what kind of water is good for the plant and bad? I've been reading distilled from various sources. If that's the case, why are my plants doing okay on this Brita stuff? Do the boiling water or leaving the water sit for days tricks work? Thanks everyone.
