I have a Venus Fly trap and i no your suppoesed to use distilled or rain water but can you use tap water with dechlorinator (like for fish takes) because it takes out the chlorine and heavy metals.

yea the chorline and heavy metals are the killer of these plants... if ok for your freshwater fish it should be fine for you VFT...

if you like and have had success with VFT's try the pingicula's from florida... they require the same care but prefer being grown in a terrarium...
