I just got a venus fly trap this week and also a pitcher plant. The pitcher plant looks good so far, but today I noticed the fly trap is browning slightly.
I am using a sphagnum peat moss with natural sand and some perlite, sitting in about 3/4 inch of water. The soil is moist. I started it a few days on my coverd porch, and then moved it outside about 3 days ago. last night was in the lower 40s.
I think I either moved the plant into diret sunlight too quickly, or the low temperatue might have caused this? The plant was located outside at the store, but under a large white sheet, just like the tomatoes. It is a reputable plant specialty store.
I would like to nurse it back to good health, any ideas are helpful.
1st picture is the day I got it, the second picture is today.
