    Hello, Im a newbie to looking after Venus Flytraps, I just bought this one for 3.99 from B&Q - does it look ok?



    Is it OK to leave the plant outside in full sun during the daytime?

    Shall I sit it in a saucer of distilled water all the time or occasionally?

    Any other tips?

    Thanks

    Andy

    That plant looks wonderful for just being bought! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Keep it in a tray of distilled water pretty much all the time, maybe let it demoisten (is that a word?) once in a while. I usually give my VFT's water everyother day at around sunset. They love full sun, maybe 5 to 6 hours a day (that is what I give mine.)

    Man I wish I could buy plants that nice looking around here. They are really hard to find, and usually when I do find them they are not looking so good. Excellent plant though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I was quite surprised at the size of it too...lets hope it continues to thrive [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The biggest traps are about an inch long.

    Are most of you guys in the USA I take it?

    I'm from the UK too!
    I'm surprised you found a plant that was alive from B&Q!! Visit www.sarracenia.com/faq.html for information about keeping your flytrap.

    Hehe, B&Q had about 8 plants in their 'warehouse' this appeared to be the best although they were all healthy. A few Pitchers which looked healthy and fat, also the ones with the dewey long leaves, cant think of the name [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
