I purchased a venus fly trap from walmart lastnight. I've bought them from stores before and never had..ANY success in keeping them. I'm here just looking for some tips on keeping it alive.. The instructions on the back of the container it was in said to put it in a saucer full of gravel (I used small pebbles from the flower bed outside) and water. Right now it's sitting on the gravel..Not submerged in the water...Anway... How often should I feed it? And what? Where should I keep it? I'm in minnesota.. Zone...4 almost 3... so it obviously can't stay outside the whole time...Or can they? Should I give it any fertilzer? Does it need to hibernate at all? If so..what should I do with it then? Should I ever put water IN the pot..or just under it?
Please reply with any tips you've got :D Thanks!
