    I just bought my first Butter wort today (from Franks nursery), I have lots of VFT's and pitcher plants, so I know what kind of growing conditions those need. Can I put the Butterwort with the VFT's which get 5 or 6 hours of direct sunlight a day? Or do these need less sun? How much water? Should I take the plastic cover off? Any other tips or advice that I should know would be greatly appreciated, Thanks for the help [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Depends on the type. I have mine in with my sundews and sarrs and nepenthes. It is dripping with mucoussy stuff and is beautiful. It gets 16 hours of artificial a night and is pretty humid in there. I also keep a cut off 2 liter bottle over it to boost humidity. Mine has been really easy to care for. Was yours from gublers becasue it might be the same type as mine?

    I got it from a local nursery chain, it's called Franks nursery and crafts. I am just gonna put it with my VFT's and Sarrs, and then see what happens from there, I guess. Thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
