Venus Flytrap Dormancy
A Perenial plant. Growing and blooming spring through summer under
natural conditions. It will die back in the fall/winter and grow back in the spring.
Indoors, or with artificial lighting, you can keep them growing and producing
traps for several years, but this will decrease the life expectancy of the plant.
In order to keep them alive for a long period of time, it must go through itís
dormancy period for at least 3 months every year.

When they die back during dormancy, they donít look all that attractive.
Many people have thrown them away thinking they are dead.
Donít make this mistake!

Some traps may turn black after feeding, this is normal. Many traps will re-open
to feed again several times...

Getting ready for next year, this plant will store itís energy in itís root system,
called a Rhizome or bulb.

Light and temperature play a big role in triggering this dormancy period.
More light and higher temps for growth, and less light will trigger dormancy.

Never let your plant get too cold.

Temperature should be between 70-100 degrees.

High humidity, if you live in the western US you will need a terrarium or dome
to keep humidity levels at a comfortable level.

Never let the plant sit in standing water unless in full sun...

Keep soil moist during dormancy, but not saturated as they may rot.

Distilled water or rain water only will be best for your plant.
