Carnivorous Plants


Carnivorous plants need to be watered on a regular basis. Being wet is not enough for them so they really need to be dunk into the water. They need a lot of water which means that the ideal method would be to leave them in a bowl full of water until they are soaking wet. The important thing is that you do not have to pour water directly on the soil but filling up the flowerpot saucer. In this way you do not wash away the sticky mucilage they create to keep nutrients always available.

Do not use tap water. The best thing is to either save rainwater or to use distilled water; it only has to have no minerals inside. In fact, if water contains minerals it can hyper fertilize the plant and burn them as well. The soil where to settle carnivorous plants is full with sand and peat but low in minerals. Sand should not come from the seaside or a chalky area because it would contain salt, potentially harmful for the plant. Mix the different kinds of mold to create the ideal location for your carnivorous plants and ask for information to experts to know the right percentage.

Carnivorous plants need light, a lot of light. Some would prefer a partial exposure to sunlight, but most of them are well placed if left under the sun. If you are not settling their location outside, you can keep them next to a window in a closed but sunny room. If there is not enough light, be provided with artificial lamps. Their location should represent the same environment of a swamp, which mean high on humidity levels, preserving them from fungi and mildews.

Carnivorous Plants: FERTILIZATION

As a general rule, these plants do not need to be fed or fertilized. They should be able to get insects on their own. Never stimulate their traps, or feed them with pieces of meat. If there are no insects, plants can be fed with dry insects you can find in the stores, but do not exaggerate. Since carnivorous plants need a rest period, do not interrupt them during the winter season. This means do not fertilize them, do not water them too much and do not expose them to sunlight more than necessary.
