    Ok, so for tonight should I just put it in with no lights and then turn them on in the morning? I'll be getting better lights after the holidays.

    it certainly wont do it any more harm to leave it out for the night, just turn them on in the morning. it should be fine.

    Yeah...there were about 6 posts made in the time it took me to write that one. I take a lot of time choosing my words.

    I'm just not a big fan of the idea of terraria for VFTs. Between their sun requirements and need for seasons, they are far from ideal plants. And especially since this plant is not healthy, and perhaps already half-dormant, I would try and give it winter-like conditions, to give it a break. Just my 2 cents.

    yeah
    i agree with giving it the winter conditions...will help store energy for spring and then BOOM great growth and healthy plant.
    and my plants do fine in my terrarium.
    though i will move them out soon or open the terrarium up a little.
    but i have my new N. Madagascariensis growing in it.
    but all of my plants seem to be just fine with how i am growing them.
