The flies, fruit flies, mosquitoes, and moths are getting really annoying and the spiders in the house aren’t helping much, so we want to get some carnivorous plants to put around the house.
Our main concern is how to maintain them during the winter. They shouldn’t have too much trouble with the cold because the same ones grow wild in a bog in town, but there won’t be any bugs during the winter, so I’m not sure what they should/would eat.
I tried looking up information on wintering carnivorous plants, but didn’t find anything useful; most of it was just about temperature, not feeding.
How can we ensure that carnivorous plants survive through the winter? Should we feed them? If so, what and how often?
(I don’t know specifically which one(s) we would get until the stores get them in. Naturally, I’d like the usual Venus Fly Trap, but the varieties that grow wild here are Sarracenia purpurea, Sundews (Drosera rotundifolia, Drosera intermedia), and Utricularia, so I would think that they would be the ones most likely to be available and likely to survive here.)
