Hey everyone! I'm new to growing Venus fly traps or for that matter anything using peat moss. I wasn't really sure if my plants are doing okay or not. I have them outside and have read a ton on what they need to flourish but I do not have the experience yet to visually know if they are ok. I used peat moss and pearlite and rain water. Any tips would be appreciated.

What soil mix are you using (peat moss and perlite brand)?
As long as the soil mix doesn't have fertilizers, you should be good.
Also, since they're outdoors, you don't need to feed them.
Here's some more information about how to care for flytraps.
