my new fly trap
Hmm this is my first post ever but I've read many of these forums in the past online when searching help for other plants. Well yesterday, like many i've read, I bought a venus fly trap at wal-mart :P my boyfriend thought it would be cool and i have lots of plants so i thought i'd give it a try as I had never had one. So we got it home and as it was looking a little shabby I thought I'd give it some loving care, I repotted it in the next step up size pot and gave it some solution I give to my other plants, miracle grow quick start transplanting solution. (its basically a fertalizer thats supposed to help prevent transplant shock) but then after I had it all cozy (or so i thought) I went online to read a little about this plant and too my horror I saw that they would die with fertalizer!!! :o ok so I feel dumb, but now I ask what should I do to save it??? I read they like high acidity and soI was owndering should I try adding some african violet fertalizer instead, would that help?? Or what else can I do???
