Hi! I’m brand new to the Venus flytrap world. Bought one for my apartment due to having a bad seal on my balcony door and having some gnats from time to time. Came with all the potting material and care information and all but I have a few questions. I will do my best to find the correct posts to ask them on. Thank you!

Welcome to the forum I’m in Boerne Texas which is right next to San Antonio! You’ll soon find out that the there’s more than the standard fly trap. If you are looking for a good gnat catcher I would recommend a sundew. They have sticky leaves that trap and absorb the insects nutrients. If you want to know some good sundews to start off with I would recommend a sundew capensis they are very beautiful and incredibly easy to grow.happy growing!

Welcome back! Man all of these old forum members are coming back I was a member since 2010 but I created a new account that says 2018 because I forgot my password to both my email and my fly trap care forum account!

Hey buddy, I don’t post that much. Just checking on spammers and reported messages. Hope everything is well. I’ve not seen some of the oldies around.
