Below is a shortlist of questions we have found that people commonly ask about watering their Venus flytraps. The list is in no way comprehensive so if you have a question, feel free to shoot us an email at or head on over to the FlytrapCare forums and ask there!

As far as watering Venus flytraps go, the rules are quite simple:

  • mineral-free or low-mineral water (below 50ppm as tested with a TDS meter)
  • keep the soil moist at all times
  • NEVER let the soil dry out completely
  • ideally, the soil should be kept damp, but not soaking wet for too long
