    This comes as a bit of surprise to me. I figured that only little critters like sphagum pnats and the like popped up in terrariums, but today I found an ever so tiny snail resting on one of my VFT leaves.

    Normally I wouldn't be concerned, but most of my plants are recovering from rather nasty root shock, and I don't want to risk anything remotely harmful being inside my terrarium that would hinder their recovery.

    So, are super tiny snails good or bad, and if bad, how do I get rid of them?
    Some random words.

    I've never had a snail problem, inside or out, but I would keep a close eye on your plants because I've heard that snails and slugs can munch on leaves. I don't know if tiny ones would be a problem or not though. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Is it about bite sized for a VFT?

    Aren't slugs and snails slightly on the "juicy" side for a VFT, enough to make it rot?

    I have snails and slugs in my basement grow room and they will eat/damage plants. So far its just been one of my orchids so I'm not worried. They seem to like thick succulent leaves. When I find one, I just toss it into a Nep pitcher.
