    How deep do the VTF's roots go? The pot's not too deep.. around two, maybe 2.5 inches. I'm afraid to drown them. I figured it's far too soon and fragile to repot a the moment, but is it too small of a pot?

    VFT roots may go as deep as 6 inches, occasionally longer, but a 6 inch pot will do. Plant in straight peat, and keep'em wet. Drown them?? Good luck trying, but not likely. Two and a half inches isn't deep enough, but suprising in how the VFT will adapt to that small amount of soil. Their survivability is incredible. Just DO NOT let them go totally dry for more than a day, or bye-bye VFT's.

    The generous hosts of these forums (**********.com) have a cool setup that they ship all their plants in for sale here. If you ever find yourself wanting new plants, PFT is the way to go!
