    If you keep the soil moist (use the tray method) then low humidity won't be a problem. My humidity gets very low at times, but it has never bothered my plants as long as I kept their soil moist.

    4 hours or more of direct sunlight will go a long way to helping your plant stay healthy. Long story short if they don't get enough light they die.

    Hey sorry, I didnt read all the way through, I thought you were being a anxious n00b, dont worry we all start out where you are now!

    tray method is keeping a tray filled with watter 24/7 (preferable about an inch to two inches it varies from person to person)

    you shouldnt worry to much about it, even if a few of the traps get burnt, the new ones should come in fine!

    ps- youre not a failure! It just takes some patience! I cant spell very good lol!

    geffacardo, for someone with a vft that doesn't know how to care for it, you could not have come to a better place. I give you props for even knowing the questions to ask and where to ask them.

    You live in California. Keep the vft outdoors in the sunniest spot you can all year round. It will grow GREAT where you live. Trust me. For now, keep it in the pot it came in, and find a plastic bowl or somethign you can put the pot into so you can set it in an inch of water. Keep water in the bowl or tray all the time. You can let it get down to almost no water then add more. (always use distilled, but if it's an emergency, tap water is better than no water.)

    Speaking of the water, you should use distilled water or rain water. Since it doesn't rain much where you are - get distilled water. It's pretty cheap at the supermarket, and for one vft, one jug will last a while.

    Do not feed your vft. It will catch it's own food when left outdoors. Only bugs are acceptable, no skittles or hamburger. Don't let your brothers mess with it - teasing the traps will eventually kill them. (once in a while is maybe OK - like don't tease the same trap twice and leave some alone completely.)

    Do these things, and it will grow really well for you.
