  11. Hi AlliRH I have also just got a bloody Mary stunning looking plant will let you know if I learn anything new .I also topped up pitchers with rainwater ,also popped in a couple of caterpillars I found in the garden for a tasty treat, I have mine in a terrarium with night temp of 13-15 ,and day temp of 24-25 with humidity 65+ ,l was thinking of putting outside but not sure best time of year to do it.
  12. Hi Steve like you I'm am new to this , I have read that you should cut the flower spike off your Venus fly trap cos it saps energy from plant , if you do cut it off cut it into 2inch pieces and place on moist peat perlite mix and in a couple of months baby fly traps, also they need to sleep over winter or they will eventually die and yours looks wide awake ,mine are all still in the land of nod(or they have all died) ,Just an observation.
