• Growing a Venus Fly Trap Indoors in a Dry Environment

    The reason for the poor (ideally "no") nutrient soil is that Venus Fly Traps evolved to absorb their nutrients through flies and other small insects; their roots do not serve any real purpose other than anchoring them in the soil. If you served the plants nutrients or minerals in the soil, they will not be healthy, and could even die, because it is too much for them to handle.
