You crazy dude?! That's gonna freeze it on contact and kill the plant.

I'm not sure if you think what Liquid Nitrogen is, so here Liquid Nitrogen Wiki

Member dude, Google, Love it and embrace it.

Since the average temperature of liquid nitrogen is somewhere between
- 220F and -240F I don't see how it would benefit your VFT's ... LOL

undoubtedly he meant a liquid form of a nitrogen fertilizer... fertilizer typically kills CP's

VFT-sicles make me sad.

Some people spray a very weak fertilizer solution on the leaves of Venus Flytraps. Watering the growing medium with any kind of fertilizer is risky because too much of dissolved mineral salts in the wet growing medium can cause chemical burn and often death of the roots and sometimes of the whole plant, usually over a period of weeks or sometimes months if the concentration of dissolved minerals is fairly low.

Liquid nitrogen is the gas nitrogen that has been compressed into liquid. When it is decompressed it becomes extremely cold, almost instantly freezing anything it touches.

Nitrogen, a major plant nutrient, can exist in liquid fertilizers, and that is probably what you were referring to, as RLK mentioned.

all that aside, if you are even a bit unsure about fertilizing your plants (which you are, otherwise you wouldn't have started this topic) then don't do it. pure and simple. its not worth risking your plant to try and do something that wont benefit them enough to outweigh the risk.

In the context for fertilizer, should be either urea, ammonium, or nitrate.
Urea usually requires bacteria to break it down to ammonium and nitrate before plant's root can absorb. Foliar spray of low grade urea would burn plant's leaf. Ammonium and nitrate are compounds in fertilizer. Unless you have access to reagent grade ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3), fertilizer mix has other minerals. It is not straightforward to make solution with known concentration, especially in small volume. Probably you can experiment when you have spare plants...:)
