Yes, placing water in the tray will let it soak up plenty of water, but remember to use only distilled water (not spring water).

spring water? spring water has chlorine and stuff in it too? i thought it was only tap water..... and i thought spring water was good. i didnt water w/ spring water. i just thought spring water had no chemicals in it

No spring water doesn't have chlorine but it does have minerals which also should be avoided cause the plants are just picky that way.
Oh and I don't know if you have checked out some of the older posts which I strongly recomend but you should also water vft by adding the water into the tray not the pot.
Oh and not to be negative but don't stress out too much if a few of the traps die. Sometimes the plants go into shock from getting shipped and being in a different enviroment. If that does happen it will usually pass in about 2 weeks.

so dont water it from the top?

nope:) just pour it into the tray

Use distilled or clean stream / river water. Keep the pot permanently in a flower pot saucer of the water.
Your plant will be ok on a windowsill, it'll start growing properly in say April.

NG, I don't like cold dark places, So we'll just leave a note, and when your at the right spot, call the Coffee shop round the corner, and we'll be right over to give you a stern talking to! http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif jk
You know, as far as boards go, this is pretty much the most laid back crowd I have ever encountered.
