1. They do best outdoors with sun exposure. Not sure where you live. If it's still bitterly cold then probably not yet. Indoors in cool area (garage, basement) with grow lighting until it warms up. 2. Water: Only distilled or rain water as tap water contains minerals that VFTs can't tolerate. Also, they need to be kept damp. Mine are in a bog garden with my Sarracenias on my patio. 3. Soil: You need peat moss with perlite mix. You can find premixed soil which can be found online though reputable carnivorous plant nurseries, 4. Dormancy is required. If you're in Northern hemisphere VFTs should be coming out of dormancy soon.
