I got my big mouth (red purple) vft from cook's today.(jumping up and down). This is how i did everything see if i screwed up..
Well first i took a gallon of distilled water and put some superthrive in it. then i took the peat moss and soaked it with the distilled water and superthrive. then i put it in a 4 inch pot. then i planted the venus flytrap in the soil. im hoping the superthrive will help it out since it's been in a box for like 3 days. i put it outside (there is no direct sunlight its kinda cloudy and its late afternoon so im thinking it will be ok). after about 30 minutes of it being outside im seeing that the traps are opening a little more (when it got here they were a little more than halfway closed). there are 4 traps one is a little bit more brown than the others (i hope it doesn't die). the traps are 1 cm . its smaller than i thought it would be but thats not a bad thing.. this way i can see it grow. still on a little blurry on a few things. like dormancy.. i don't know if i should let it go dormant this winter or not i think i will though. i plan to give it light (sunlight) all day (about 3-4 is direct sunlight). tell me what you think
