    First CP is a VFT, need help!

    My nephew's step grandma gave him this plant tonight. He is staying with my son and wanted to trade me for some magic cards. I couldn't say no, but I'm looking at this plant and I'm a little concerned, I don't know if it is going dormant or if it is dying. What should I do with this plant. All help is greatly appreciated!

    thing looks crazy etoliated
    get it in some good light as soon as you can.
    its the same as my first VFT
    looks like the same mini terrarium too
    take the terrarium off, put the plant on a east windowsill if possible and it should be fine.
    mine ended up being 5 plants...i did the seperation yesterday lol but i had the plant for about 3 months.

    I also have a 10 gallon aquarium that I was going to turn into a non cp terrarium. It doesn't have anything in it right now, but I have the light. Should I put this in a dish of water and keep the light on it for a couple of days? I'm still waiting for my potting soil to thaw out so I can use the aquarium for a few days.

    A Fittonia and a Leea. They are still in the pots I bought them in and are happy, so I could probably use the aquarium longer if I needed too.

    well, a west window or a south window is good too
    if your growing in a terrarium make sure you use good strong light.

    Should I set it in there in a little water and leave the light on for days, or should I just it off during the day?? Where I was thinking of putting it gets very little light during the day.
