Water: Keep the soil wet or at least damp all of the time. The easiest way to do this is use the tray method. Set the pots in a tray or saucer, and keep water in it at all times. Add water to the tray, rather than watering the plant. Always use mineral-free water with your carnivorous plants, such as rainwater or distilled water. Try keeping a bucket near the downspout to collect rainwater. Avoid bottled drinking water. There are simply too many minerals in it. The minerals from tap water can "over-fertilise" and "burn out" the plants.
Soil: The nutrient poor soils to which the carnivorous plants have adapted are often rich in peat and sand. You can duplicate this with a soil mixture of sphagnum peat moss and horticultural sand. Be sure to check the peat label for sphagnum moss. Other types will not work well. The sand should be clean and washed. Play box sand is great or you can buy horticultural sand. Avoid "contractor’s sand" which will contain fine dust, silt, clay and other minerals. Never use beach sand or limestone-based sand. The salt content will harm the plants. The ratio of the mix is not critical, 1 part peat with 1 part sand works well for most carnivorous plants. Flytraps prefer a bit more sand, and nepenthes prefer much more peat, but again the mix is not critical, as long as it is sphagnum peat and clean, washed sand.
Light: Carnivorous plants, as a general rule, grow best in sunny conditions. Many do well in partial sun. The plants also do well under artificial light.
Temperature: Most carnivorous plants will do fine in normal room temperature.
Humidity: Carnivorous plants grow naturally in humid bogs and swamps; therefore your growing environment should duplicate these conditions. This can easily be accomplished by simply keeping your plants wet at all times.
Food: As a general rule, do not feed or fertilise your carnivorous plants.
