    Hi, I ordered a sundew from **********, even though I read the help forums I still have no idea how to take care of this cool plant! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]
    \"The plant grew. It\'s resoruces were taken away. He was forced to evolve. He struggled and pushed and grew, until finally one day it sprouted a trap. A bug landed in, he was a little to noisy and got himself locked in. The plant now had resoruces, and he grew happy as a VFT for years.\"

    These guys do best in a media of pure sphag. Temps should be above 60 ideally 70-80. High humidity (75% minimum.) They tend to like lower light levels so shoot for someplance that gets good light but not direct sun, under fluorescents works well too. Never, ever fertilize as it will burn them.

    Add to this that feeding this or other Queensland species prey is not the best idea as the leaves are very easily attacked by fungus, and it starts where the prey decomposes and spreads quickly in the high humidity of the terrarium.
