    i thought this thread was supposed to be about advice and tips...

    any tips on how to get my poor plant back to good health? there are literally only a few traps and they are itty bitty bitty and not even fully grown. the other one died. yet i'm thinking of buying another one- it's like they provoke me with a challenge.

    bugfreak- Has the plant always been in "bad" shape? Or is there something that triggered it to go bad all the sudden?

    Yeah, and didn't your CO2 unit blow up, too? Maybe that had something to do with it!

    Bugfreak - how's your soil look? Make sure you are using clean water. If it arrived in poor health you might want to contact the seller/trader. If it came bareroot you might want to check your soil ingredients. Make sure there is no fertilizer in it.

    I feed my VFT's red jello. It gives them that nice red hue inside the traps.

    NEVAH!!!!!!!!!! Don't waltz in here thinking you know it all. Many of us would be happy to burst your bubble!!! Know it alls can't learn anything if they think they know it all already. NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY knows it all when it comes to Nature and growing. Never forget the plants have their preferences too, and you can't change that.
