The Dionaea Flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) is a plant that requires a substrate free of mineral salts, therefore it needs rain water, being osmosis or distilled. If not, the salt weakens its development in excess. Neither should be fertilized. The recommended substrate used is a mixture of peat moss with perlite or sand (proportion 2:1 or 1:1) or live and dehydrated sphagnum. It requires 3-4 hours minimum of direct sunlight and it is important to prevent the soil from drying out. The ideal irrigation is the “tray method,” which consists of placing the plant over a plate or tray with 2cm of water so it can absorb it, leaving it 1-2 days a week without water on the plate. Do not feed, it hunts for itself. Origin: It grows in North America, Northern Peatlands and South Carolina.
