    Yes, they like the water. Don't follow the advice given in the BP CP book from Singapore. Check this out instead: http://www.**********.com/vftcare.html

    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Your VFT doesn't actually need to eat all the time. But you can try going to an aquarium or something to see if you can find some dried insects.

    I can't remember what other food substitutes vfts like.

    If u're getting dead food, u'll need to rub the sides of the closed trap in order for it to start digesting the food. Otherwise the trap will reopen the next day with the uneaten food.

    Hi Wezx, I'm glad you found us! The address I gave you was obviously correct.
    These guys can probably answer all your questions better than me but do keep in touch with me via my normal e-mail.
    Happy growing, Neil
    p.s. you asked me last time where I bought my plants. If you want nepenthes in Singapore then I'd recommend Island nursery for some nice mature plants. They normally have 2 varieties. This is one variety I bought last week.
    Nepenthes gentle

    Keep in touch okay - I'll e-mail you.
    A 'pitcher gallery' is where the art is drawn by Mother Nature and a 'pitcher says a thousand words'.
    My pitcher gallery is at: http://community.webshots.com/user/neilsingapore

    wezx,

    I recommend four books... books becos' you can bring them into the kitchen or anywhere else with you when you need to take a cutting or is repotting. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    1. Savage Gardens by Peter D' Amato (great cultivation tips)
    2. Carnivorous Plants of the World by James and Patricia Pietropaolo (detailed description on how to take a cutting, repot plants, and cultivate them)
    3. Carnivorous Plants by Tony Camilleri (great photos)
    4. Carnivorous Plants of Singapore by Hugh T.W. Tan (what we have as our nation's pride)
