hi! I have a new Venus Flytrap. This is my first time to own a venus flytrap.
I received my Venus Flytrap last September 6, 2011
I water them 2 times a day (morning and night with rain water)
I fed them mosquitoes.
I place them into direct sunlight from 7am-12noon. and transfer it to a new place where there is no direct sunlight.

Any tips on how to grow my venus flytrap well?

What kind of media are you using? Is that bark?

Don't water them too much. If kept too wet, a Venus Flytrap could rot and die.
How do you water and how much water do you use? The plant and growing medium in the soil looks much too wet.
What kind of soil are you using? What kind of water are you using?

I would take it out of the larger pot and give it plenty of light while allowing it to dry until just moist before watering thoroughly again, and keeping to that routine.

Good luck-- :)
