    your plant seems pretty young still, so...a long time. They are slow growing when they are juvenile.

    Also, do you know what species it is?

    I don't suggest having time release fertilizers in a classic style terrarium, especially one that can't be flushed and where you have multiple genera with totally different requirements. Not a good idea, really.

    I never would have noticed the fertilizer, but yea, most carnivorous plants don't like fertilizer.

    I disagree. I should save my reasoning in a file and copy and paste it lol.

    Most CP's benefit from it, but I do not recommend putting time release pellets in THAT particular setting, especially with a newbie (no offense intended).


    By the way, you don't have to put NEW** in all the thread titles lol.

    It was to my understanding that CP's don't like fertilizer at the roots. So if it's in small amount it's ok? Is the time release bad in a terrarium because it will gradually build up?
