I recently bought a Venus Fly Trap plant. I was very curious as to take care of it. Would I need to buy a Terrerium (sp?) to grow it in? What fertilizer would be good for this type of plant? Thank you for your time.

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

That plant needs to be in an enclosed very moist growing environment such as a terrarium. You don't need to fertilize it. Use distilled water too, not chlorinated tap water.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
