I rescued a Venus flytrap that was given to a friend when he recently bought tickets to "Little Shop of Horrors" (a terrible gimmick). A child of the 1980s, I named him Marty McFlytrap and researched all there was to know about how to give him a happy life. This site was most helpful.
I bought Marty growing medium. (https://www.flytrapcare.com/store/venus-fly-trap-soil)
And a planter. (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07 ... UTF8&psc=1)
And a clamp lamp. (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01 ... UTF8&psc=1)
And 6500K, 100-watt light bulbs. (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00 ... UTF8&psc=1)
And a timer. (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00 ... UTF8&psc=1)
He was doing quite well. Even in his death cube, he had sprouted a few new leaves. But within 12 hours of repotting Marty into his roomier home and setting him in a windowsill and under the lamp, my cat (or cats) ate him, roots and all. I had not foreseen death by pet as a problem, as these cats have been quite respectful of flora in the past. I was more worried that they'd knock over the planter, not that they'd consume the contents.
I could try to love again, but the only cat-free place I have in my apartment is on a bookshelf that gets no natural light. That's probably not in the best interest of Marty Jr. Growing outdoors is not an option, as I live in Manhattan and do not have access to my building's yard.
Rather than risk having more blood/rhizomes on my hands, I'd like to give these supplies away. Is there anyone in the New York City area who needs them?
