First time VFT owner. A few questions. Can I use a black light for artificial light? What will happen if I planted it in garden soil?
No black light. The plant should be acclimated to OUTDOOR Full Sunlight.
NO GARDEN SOIL, it'll die. Use a 50/50 mix of peat moss and perlite (NOT Miracle grow!).
Use rainwater or Distilled water only, NO TAP water.
Google Venus Flytrap care and read as much as you can.
