I tried everything, giving it 4 hours of sunlight (not direct), using the right soil, at first it seemed like I was watering it to much so I reduced that, now im watering it every other day from the bottom and im using the recommended amount of water.
Currently I have 2 grown ups left, the rest are trying to grow but they jusy keep tearing, dying, they grow deformed or just turn soft and die.
Any tips I could use to save my dying venus flytrap?

It looks light-starved, either needs more direct sunlight, or you'll need good, strong artificial lighting to supplement if you can't give it more direct sunlight.

Most people have fatal issues trying to keep them inside long term. VFT's need full direct sun and also they have to go dormant. They are from North Carolina that's hot summers cold winters, hard to mimic in a home.
