Hi all

I have my carnivorous plants in their individial post and stood in a tray of rain water.

I have read about it going stagnant and anaerobic, so should I every now and then empty the water and allow the plants in their pots to drain for a few hours?

Not necessary, but it won't do any harm so long as you do NOT let the plants themselves dry out.  You will find the tray and maybe the water goes green after a while with algae growing on it.  Rinse out and clean the tray when this happens unless you don't mind it looking all green!  In any event, the water will probably all evaporate fairly quickly in warm weather.  Do make sure you only use rainwater in the tray though.

Kind regards,  Rob
