    Hi Urban and welcome to the forums! Make sure you the plant lotsa light. Distilled water can be purchased by the gallon at your local grocery store, for about 60 cents. However, your climate is great for keeping it outside all year round, which would be better for the plant.

    Just as well you don't plant it there at any time. Regular garden soil would kill your VFT. Keep it in a pot of sphagnum peat based potting mix or most any other nutrient poor potting medium.

    The terrarium will work fine. I would not cover the opening on top, though. Leaving it open will help keep the air inside from getting stagnant which could cause fungus problems.

    What he meant is if you keep it closed then it would cause fungus growth. Also, you could just keep it in a pot of peat moss/perlite or sand on a sunny patio. If you are using it for fly control it wont work very well. You'll have to have a lot. Like 10-15 to even start fly control.
