You can sit them in water, and refill when the water runs out. I think a lot of people over-complicate watering flytraps. You should only fear rot if your conditions do not have much airflow and light.
Well, now that I have D. camporupestris, there isn't really anything to put in my signature...

Also, in the environment, they always have their roots exposed to moisture, so don't let them dry out unless they are dormant. If they are, you can lighten the watering.

I personally like the tray method but actually use the "water around the plant when it's dry" method. You can also try putting the pot in a bigger pot and putting water in the big pot.
