    I think vfts do better when they are not in a terrarium. If you have a window with full sun then that is probably the best place to grow them. I would grow them on a mix of 50:50 peat and sand. If you prefer you can use 100% peat or 100% LFS they work just as well.

    If your windows face South or south-west, and get the sun for several hours each day that will be good enough.

    Terrarium growing with poor ventilation will net you all kinds of really neat VFT killing molds and fungus'. Terraria may be a must in some areas, but where you are in New Jersey, you just need the open windowsill with about 3 or 4 hours of sun, when sun is available. Don't worry about the amount of sun they are getting right now. But when spring comes, give them all the sun you can, and grow them outside.
