Bought the kids a Venus Flytrap from Lowes last weekend. Saw in other posts about saving plants from Lowes. Mine was a similar situation, Kids had asked about how they worked awhile back and I told them all I knew from ones I had as a kid. Never did last very long, but this one is way healthier than anything I ever started with. Same story descibed elsewhere, impulse buy when I saw several dead plants. Asked about them and was shown a box, still unopened of shipment that had just come in. Traps even had pink centers. Had only seen that in pictures so I feel we are way ahead of the game. How often should we feed it, What to feed when flies go away, How often to water? Should we leave covered in it's plastic box except to feed and water with exception of the airflow time mentioned elsewhere? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. G.H.
