    How-to: Water tray

    I just got a terrarium and I got a VFT and some other plants. I have heard here about water trays. So I want to know how to make a water tray?

    Take a dish.. fill it with water.. put pot with plant inside. The End.

    when it is dry.

    May we ask...why the terrarium? The VFTs don't need them and depending on the other plants, they may not either.

    My plants last summer were out in plastic litter boxes with 5 or 6 pots per box. Yes, it looked...not-so-beautiful, but it worked. It would rain and the water sat in the pans until the next rain. If it went a long while in between rains and it did dry up, I added some purified water from jugs. There shouldn't be any reason to change the water unless something funky goes on.

    What sort of lighting are you using?

    Some people must have things spelled out in letters for them. I guess if we weren't here for some people they'd have pot-shaped mounds of peat sitting in a tray of thick, algae soup.
