This plant bites back! Venus Flytraps are famous for their predatory traps that catch insects, which they digest and use as fertilizer! Care for Venus Flytraps is a little unusual, but once you get used to it, they are as easy as can be! 

Venus Flytraps want full sun outdoors. It is common for several of the traps to "burn" and die back when you first put it into the sun, but it is just getting used to the full sun exposure and it will quickly grow new traps.  They will thrive in full sun, meaning at least six hours of direct light. You can grow them indoors on a very, very sunny windowsill or in a terrarium under grow lights but they generally do best outdoors.  Also, if you grow them indoors be sure to provide them with a winter dormancy.

Always keep them sitting in a saucer with a few inches of distilled or purified water, they do not want to dry out but try not to flood the top of the traps with water as they do not appreciate this. Never let them dry out.  Always use distilled, reverse osmosis or rain water only.  These plants are especially sensitive to their water quality and it is very important to give them mineral and salt free water.
