This is my second try growing a VFT. As happend with my first one, after a couple of days the edges of the traps are turning black and the slowly wither and die. Here is what I have, any advice would be greatly appreciated its so hard to stand by helplessy and watch this magnificent creation of mother nature waste away.
I bought it a Wal-Mart (big mistake I know) but it looked very healthy, vibrant and green.
I put it in a medium vase, I took the plant out of its small container and placed it in the vase with some cactus potting mix, but I left the plant in the moss that it was originally in from the store and surrounded it with the cactus potting mix.
I have not fed it any insects yet.
I have had it for almost two weeks.
It is outside uncovered in the full sun, soil is very moist, and I keep it so.
I don't know what to do.
