I in no way doubt Mett’s words, all my knowledge about flytraps is theoretical because I read a lot about them, but of course I trust more practice and as I have little experience growing them, I undoubtedly believe you, and I am very happy to learn new. Thank you!Archie Adams wrote: ↑Wed Mar 25, 2020 5:25 pmAs Josh said, bog, not swamp. Easily confused but very different. And there is no need to doubt anything Matt says, he is the king of Venus flytraps. We all are lucky to have experienced people like him assist newbies like me in growing .Matt wrote: ↑Wed Mar 25, 2020 5:16 pmActually such a flower needs a very high level of air humidity because the venus flytrap is a swamp plant, the soil in the pot must be moist all the time, and air humidity is required at least 60%
That's not true for flytraps. We regularly grow ours outdoors in full sun in southern Oregon where the relative humidity levels are in the 15%-25% range during the summer months and they thrive. So long as the soil stays damp and there aren't strong drying winds, flytraps do not need any special considerations in terms of humidity levels.
