What do venus fly traps eat?

Venus Fly Traps will eat any kind of insect, but only insects. Do not try to feed them human food like chicken, beef, pork, doritos, avocado or anything else. Insects are the only thing on the menu for Venus fly traps.

they can eat small frogs and toads also they can eat ladybugs (orange not red) and can eat caterpillars (not poisonous ones)

I'm guessing frogs and slugs are bad (too big/will eat it) and dead bugs r probally fine if they were recently killed, not dead 4 a long time and nontoxic
#8 Bob 2012-12-31 11:16
But I read that they shouldnt eat meat. Or beatles (too hard). Or fireflies (toxic). Or slugs or catterpillars or ants or aphids or anything that will eat/harm them ... feed them flies... and fruit flies... Feed them small meaty bugs (AND bUGS ONLY) that are 1/3 theyre traps size ;-) :D 8)

ive had mine for a long time and i live in a place where it is winter 10 months out of the year so i just feed it a lil bit of ground beef. its not dead and it is actually getting bigger and it has flowers and the whole works. so obviously its not horrible for it.

Are Frogs or slugs Bad to feed it or not Quote:

Just because the plant didn't die doesn't mean that beef or chicken or whatever is good for them. There are a lot of things that you could do to a Venus flytrap that won't kill it, but aren't necessarily good for it ;-)

Venus Fly Traps do eat beef or whatever because I fed mine chicken and it didn't die. :P
