Dionea muscipula - growing and propagation?
    #1988680 - 10/08/03 12:57 AM (14 years, 13 days ago)

high community!
my dad, knowing about my taste for odd plants and fungi, has gifted me with a little dionea muscipula plant, which i always wanted to have!
we used to have a nepenthes like 10 yrs ago, i liked them already.
i was wondering if someone could give me personal hints or links on this one... so far i've found only basic growing instructions, i'd like to know how to propagate and how to stress it for it to have to eat flies (i've heard a well nurtured one will live just on its roots)...
any input is welcome!
here's what i found already:

Too much water. Too much sun. One too many collisions with the floor. My dog seemed to really really want to kill it : P

And it never got red and attracted flies on its own, it stayed green and never fully digested anything I put in it.

They should be grown in peat moss and watered with de-ionized water. I bet if you do that you'll see a vast improvement.
