What eats a carnivorous plant?


Its scientific name is Diaonaea muscipula, commonly known as the Venus flytrap. It is the most commercial carnivorous plant find in any shop can easily find, it's easy to keep and breed.

As a substrate for use venus peat mixed with soil. It is a plant that needs a lot of moisture, we always have it on a plate with water to keep it moist.

It is an outdoor plant, its origin is South Carolina. We recommend leaving the plant is about 5 ° C during the cold months, as long as the city where you live allows. The goal is to make a hibernation. If where you live is too cold or too light can make the following trick and put the plant in the cooling zone of your fridge for three months ... Do not need light? Remember that are hivernando.

After this time we will raise the temperature of the plant begin to sprout new leaves will flourish also.

The Venus has a very strong flowering, and have read that it is advisable to cut the flower stem so that the plant does not wear, but I do not recommend do it, on the contrary I think it is better to give the plant the best possible conditions for the then no problem.

The Venus flytrap reproduce in different ways, the first is by seeds. Of the flower of the plant would obtain germinariamos and would plant seeds.

Then we get new plants from cuttings of the leaves, placing them in a damp but no direct sun light in a few weeks we get new plants salgdran from the base of the leaves.

Finally we get new plants by division, if we get the venus from its pot see that we can remove 4 or 5 plants at least, putting each into a new pot would obtain new plants.

For irrigation of venus must use rainwater or osmosis, without minerals.

The roots only serve as an anchor and to drink water, do not fertilize the plant in any way.

Their diet consists of giving a fly or other small bug once a week.

We must pay special care with:

. - Making traps are closed with nothing inside, the kill of stress

. - Putting bugs too fat, the trap will dry and may not digeririr that dam.

. - Always watered with rainwater or RO water

. - Avoid direct sun

As you see it is fairly simple, requiring only moisture and light, but not direct sunlight.
