Hey guys, my name is Nick and I'm new to not only the forums but to VFT and plants in general! I ask that you please bare w/ me on my newbie questions as we all have to learn at some point, right?
Well today I decided I wanted to start getting into plant life and growth, so I ran out to my local nursurey and bought a Venus Fly Trap...below is the image...
Anyway, I've been reading and still have a few questions...these suckers are about 2-2.5 inches in length and appear to be pretty health aside from 2 stems which have a brown end on them, looks like a smaller version of the "heads" of the other stems, but brown - should I cut these? if so how far down do I cut them?
I'm also moving to boston in the winter - how should I prepare them for the winter up there? I know they can't survive outside and I've read that they need to be in a cool place (40-55) so what should I do?
How often should I be watering this and how much? Also what do I do about feeding? I read that you didn;t NEED to feed them but it will help speed up the growth process.
Any info and help is appreciated.
