The musings of Carnivorous Plant addicts!
So, Around 5 months ago I got a Venus Flytrap not knowing anything about them. I named him Marty Mcfly not too long after he died. Now fast forward 3 months. I was at Lowes the other day purchasing some flowers to put in my garden when I came across venus flytraps. After thinking it over a couple of minutes I decided I was going to do it right this time. I put him in my cart and named him Fergus or as I like to call him Fergie or Gus I brought him home and began to water him distilled water as recommended. After him being in my home for several days I felt bad for him being in such a tiny pot so I transferred him into a bigger pot and filled it with peat moss and "all purpose sand" now I kinda have a bad feeling about the all purpose sand and I was wondering if it is safe to have for venus flytraps. I tried to get more information of what kind of sands are actually in it but all I could see was "all purpose sand" it feels and looks very coarse which makes me feel like it may be right for the plant but I also have a bad feeling about it. Thanks so much for your time wish me luck with my precious plant, Fergus :)
