Great list of Venus fly trap care points

Steve made this post in a thread and I thought it was worth making a sticky so that it doesn't get buried. Also, I'm sure that many people might not even read the thread, but EVERYONE should read this post! :D

Definitely good information. It's been tricky here in the southeastern United States lately because with all the rain the humidity has remained near 100% constantly for nearly two months. The LFS seems to hold water so much longer and it has been hard to NOT overwater.

Hi... I've bought a flytrap yesterday and I noticed we cant use water from the tap.
I've bought a Spritzer bottled water with Distillation Process label on it. I wonder if this type of water safe for my flytrap?

Really appreciated if anyone can advice me on this.
