my fly traps are not dying, but they're not growing either. I've got them by the window getting sunlight for half the day and under a UV light. My older plants were doing great under theses conditions but these plants are not. I have no clue what to do. Help. Thanks in advance.
I use peat 100%. I was using a peat/perlite mix but I switched to 100% peat. my old plants seem to be doing well in 100% peat, but I have 3 new plants under the same conditions that seem to be stuck in time. Traps don't respond so feeding them is out of the question. no new traps but plant doesn't seem to be dying either...
I'm gonna try repotting them. I just wanna add that I'm from Toronto and it's been unseasonably cold here. it's Aug 08 and it's 18 degrees outside. it's also been very gloomy and overcast for a good long while...

I agree it is too compact. They like a nice fluffy soil I find. I usually use a 50/50 peat perlite and sometimes a little bit of sand. But the perlite is important because they have delicate roots and it makes it easier for them to get through aswell as make a few airpockets. Hope this helps
