Basic Venus Fly Trap Information
It is also grown indoors around the world in Venus fly trap terrariums. It is the most well-known carnivorous plant and one of the few that traps its prey through motion. A healthy plant will reach a height of 4 to 5 inches in two to four years.
Why is my Venus flytrap going black?
Like many other temperate plants, Venus flytraps require a cold winter dormancy in order to survive long-term. As the daylight hours shorten and temperatures drop, it's normal for some traps to go black and die as your plant enters its winter resting phase.
Can I use a lamp for my Venus flytrap?
For your Venus fly trap indoor setup, you can use regular LED lights with white light. Venus fly traps planted in a 10-inch diameter pot will need a 25-watt LED bulb that is turned on for 14 hours per day, advises the International Carnivorous Plant Society. This gives the plant the needed 15,000 to 25,000 lux per day.
Can you touch Venus flytrap?
No harm will come to you, but you may harm the plant. The leaves that form the trap portion of the flytrap can only close so many times before they die, so stimulating them unnecessarily only serves to hasten their end. Springing the leaves of the plant shut also makes them unavailable for photosynthesis.
