Carnivorous Plants/Venus Flytrap


Will bottled water or distilled water be good to water a Venus Flytrap? I might be thinking about getting one and I'm curious about that?

As long as the bottled water is marked "distilled" it will work well.  However, no water with "minerals added for taste" or "natural spring water" or any other type of "drinking" water should be used.  It will contain enough minerals to kill flytraps relatively quickly.
