I just purchased a little baby flytrap. I brought it home, watered it a bit with rain water (thank god it rained today!) and fed it an ant. It seemed to close well.
I live in Canada in a not-too-humid nowadays climate and the plant I originally intended keeping on a basement window. But now that I'm reading this site I'm wondering what special accomodations I need to make for the plant to survive. If someone can give me some starter info I'd be grateful.
Also, how often does the plant need to 'eat'? I realize it catches its own grub but providing the supply of bugs is low, how often would I need to help it out?
