    Welcome to the forums! If you have a south facing window, that will work well also.

    There was some rule of thumb about 1 critter per trap. I think it's in Barry Rice's FAQ treatise.

    Couple things to keep in mind about the traps on VFTs. First they are only able to close a few times before the trap quits trapping. Second, the plants produce nutrients by photosynthesis like any other plant, the bugs just supply a bit of the nitrogen and other minerals that are lacking in their soil. Bugs have been likend to fertilizer pills [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] for your VFT. It comes down to the more you feed your plant the sooner the traps quit working and begin to die. On the other hand, why have a VFT if your not going to drop in the occasional bug to watch the traps close?

    A tip for feeding it flies. Catch the fly in a jar and stick the covered jar in the freezer for a couple minutes. Just long enough that the fly begins to quit moving. Drop the fly in the VFT trap and as it warms back up and starts moving it trips the trap. VFT traps need the movement of bugs inside the trap after they close or they open back up in a day. Thats why dead bugs don't work as well.

    Dear Vixen:

    I hereby salute you a warm welcome to the forums.

    But first, some questions:

    What grade are you in?

    I know you are from England, but is English your native language?

    Do you write like this in school?

    Here are the spelling blunders alone. I call it pure "rubbish". Blimey rubbish, in fact! Sodding rubbish! J K Rowling would be mortified!

    It must take TREMENDOUS effort to spell like this! whew! Tiring, isn't it?

    balt = bought ?
    shore = sure ?
    life = live ?
    acherly= ACTUALLY? (this one gets me the most)
    god = good (this one actually makes religious sense)
    lerner = learner ?
    reconmendation= recommendation ?
    sorce = source ?



    Thanks for joining the forum but please for many of our eyes' and ears' sakes, apply the rules of grammar and language usage your teacher gives you. The forumers here will better be able to assist you on your problems.

    Good luck on your plants! Godspeed!!


    Your fellow Briton,
    GrammarPolice
    I'm WATCHING you!
