The Venus flytrap, or flycatcher, is a carnivorous plant that grows in swamps and peat bogs. It therefore has a great need for constant humidity. A terrarium is almost essential to its survival in the climates of our homes, or at least a bed of clay balls.

We water as soon as the soil begins to become dry. She prefers non-calcareous water, like rainwater, for example. Many came away disappointed from their short experience with this mysterious and beautiful plant, because they had not set up a sufficiently humid environment.

She likes good light, but without direct sun. It can be placed outside during the summer, on the balcony or on the edge of a window, where it can take in the morning or evening sun, which it particularly likes, and capture its prey.

From November to March, it needs a period of rest in the cold. A place that does not exceed 10 degrees, such as the fridge or a cold room
