When should I hibernate my Venus flytrap?

In order for Venus Flytraps to survive long-term, they must have a dormancy period every year that lasts three to five months. A minimum dormancy period of 10 weeks is required for Venus flytraps. Any shorter than that, and they will not grow well throughout the next growing season.

Correspondingly, do Venus fly traps die in the winter?

Dormancy -- Venus Fly Traps need a dormant period in the winter. This period usually lasts about 3 months. As a venus fly trap enters its dormant period, the tall large growth on it will die, leaving a few small leaves or even just its bulb and root system. Be careful not to mistake this for a dying plant.

Likewise, when should I repot my Venus Fly Trap? When to Repot a Venus Flytrap While Venus flytraps don't mind being repotted during most times of the year, it is best to repot them during the spring or early summer as this is when they come out of their winter dormancy. Avoid repotting Venus flytraps while they are actively flowering.

Then, do you feed a Venus fly trap during dormancy?

During winter dormancy you will not have to feed your plant at all. You will only need to feed your plant about four times per year, one bug feeding at a time. Do not overfeed or your plant may die. Carnivorous plant color will be green in your home, but with bright light, plants can grow more reddish in color.

Can you over water a Venus fly trap?

In general, it is almost impossible to over water your Venus Fly Trap. In fact, Dionaea can survive being completely submerged in water for a couple of days. However, if Venus fly traps are kept too wet for too long, it will lead to problems.
