    Thanks for the warm welcome! Im so excited about my VFT, Im learning they are just like hermit crabs...warmth, humidity, and dechlorinated water!

    adnedarn, I have decided to just put him in a bigger plastic pot and then set the pot in the kritter keeper...seems easier that way if I need to take him out or when i comes time for dormancy. (I need to learn you guys definition of terrarium!)

    warmth, humidity, and dechlorinated water!
    yes. not really. and no! haha my flytraps grow ourdoors year round. they experience whatever the humidity is outside. and water that is only dechlorinated is bad! it not only need to be de chlorinated....but also free of minerals, salts and other contaminants. distilled water and reverse osmosis water(the kind from the filling stations at grocery stores) are the way to go!

    welcome to TF!!

    You've posted quite a bit around so far, but I thought I should give you the official "welcome!" in your thread. I had a hermit crab when I was a kid. Loved him. What a fun pet. What exactly do you include in your hermit crab food?
