    if you can find the regular aquafina...it is RO water. but still expensive....just look for distilled water in Nofrills or A&P.....at 1.20$ for 4 liters....its quite a decent deal.

    Remember with VFTs a trick .......I learnt it myself from the veterans here.......EVERYONE HAS their own touch to growing these plants.

    SOme don't like being water logged...say it rots the roots. Some think its better to leave it water logged.
    I do mine in a watering + semi drying before rewatering....it seems to give a decent result so far.

    Or repot them in a tall deep pot so the roots don't actually sit underneath the water level.

    roger that! give it atleast 20 cm of potting soil. I recently removed a potted VFT and it had like 20 cm long roots. I was shocked by their size.
