The Q&A Archives: Super Thrive, and Venus Flytraps?

Question: Dear Whom It May Concern,
I have bought a product called Super Thrive, and I would like to have your opinion on that product.
I was wondering if it was an okay product to use with my Venus Flytrap? It says it has vitamins and hormones. I am worried more about the vitamins because they are supposed to have very poor soil!

P.S., Thank you, for your help!

Answer: I would suggest you contact the manufacturer with regard to using their product on specific plants. However, in my experience, the little Venus flytraps do best if watered with rain water and kept in a high humidity location. They do not seem to need additional treatment and are as you noted, are very sensitive to their water. If you have two, you might try it on one and experiment and see what happens but I would advise against it unless the manufacturer gives you the go-ahead.
