    You'll find moving your plant around a lot will do more damage than good. Plants need to adjust and acclimate to their growing conditions. You'll find some horror stories about people who have moved their plants all over the house for weeks trying to get it to a "better" spot since the health of the plant was declining. Then they say once they kept it in one spot it got better! Regardless, humidity is overrated. Just give it good light and water and it will do well, unless of course your humidity is like -10%. lol.

    xvart.

    edit: as for other predators, squirrels are known to dig into some vft and sarrs from time to time. Some people hang up CD's by the plant to scare birds and squirrels away.

    Post these topics in the Venus Flytrap area please.

    And no, leave all your plants in one spot and leave them there.

    They do fine in low humidity. Mine are outside and the humidity is 22% and the temp is 43F. Earlier today the reading was "LO" and the temp was 71F. Just keep a little water in the tray all the time.

    I moved this topic into the appropriate forum. Hi WeedKing. You'll probably get better response to a topic about a specific plant if you post it into the forum for that specific genus.

    I guess any animal that grazes on a variety of green leafy plants might eat a VFT but there isn't anything that specifically feeds on them.
