2011-08-30 21:42 Source: http: //www.flower-fans.com Author: Flower Soul

Venus flytrap likes acid and moist substrate and good light.
Substrate: For planting Venus flytraps, a substrate with good water retention, acidity or even strong acidity should be used, and the pH value is between 3-5. You can use pure sphagnum moss or a mixed substrate of 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite or river sand, Pot immersion method can use 1 part of peat, 1 part of perlite or river sand.
Moisture: Venus flytrap is more sensitive to salt. Too high mineral concentration in water will cause plants to decline until death, which is manifested as plants stop growing or shrinking, and the edges of unaged clips and leaves begin to die. Therefore, low minerals must be used.Concentrated water source. The substrate can be kept at a high humidity during the growing season, and the pot can also be used for planting. The dormant period needs to be dry but not dry to prevent plant rot.
Humidity: The air humidity of the Venus flytrap should be kept above 50%, and the general planting environment can be satisfied, without special humidification.
Temperature: The suitable temperature for growth is 20-30 degrees, and it will be dormant below 10 degrees most leaves will wither during dormancy, and only a few small leaves are left, and it can survive at 0-38 degrees.
Illumination: Venus flytrap is a light-loving plant, it can accept full daylight, and the light can make the plant color bright, but in summer to avoid high temperature, it can be shaded appropriately.
Nutrients: In the growing season, use general compound fertilizer to dilute five thousand times and spray the leaves, 1-2 times a month. Fertilization is rather thin and frequent, and the concentration should not be too high, so as to avoid fat injury or even fat death.Consequences, do not fertilize at will if you have no experience. Feeding methods can also be used to feed insects or raw meat, and the size should be appropriate so that the clips can completely cover the food. The number of feeding clips cannot exceed 1/ of the total number of clips.3.
Disease: The high temperature in summer is easy to rot the stems. Good ventilation, root cooling, good light, and large temperature difference between day and night can help reduce the occurrence of diseases. If you find that some of the stems have rotted, you should immediately remove the rotted parts completelyClean it, then put it in the fungicide and soak for 5 minutes, and then implant the sterilized clean matrix.

Venus flytrapReproductionMethod
Leaf insert: Peel off the whole leaf from the mother plant, insert it diagonally or place it flat on a clean substrate such as sphagnum moss, maintain high humidity and bright light, and buds can grow in about 2 months.
Branch: Venus flytraps will often grow side buds. When they are large enough, they are separated from the mother plant and cultivated separately. Sometimes the flower stems will grow buds, and it can also be cultivated as a component plant.
Seeding: Venus flytrap seeds should be sown as soon as possible after harvesting, the longer the time, the germination rate will be reduced, and the storage time should not exceed 12 months. When sowing, it can be sprinkled directly on the clean substrate surface mixed peat or pure sphagnum moss can be used, The surface is not covered with soil or covered with 1-3mm high fine peat or fine-grained red jade soil to help fix the root system, maintain high humidity and bright light, keep the temperature at 15-30 degrees, and germinate in about a month, plant 3-5It can grow to an adult plant at a young age.
