    lol. I actually just went to the store and bought some distilled water, so I feel nice and prepared. Your supposed to water from the bottom for VTF's right, and why does that matter? I've got a 6in plastic pot with one of the trays btw.

    the pot it came in is fine probably, they dont have any major roots so its not gonna be an issue. just sit it in a tray of water, top watering is fine too though

    The reasoning behind "watering from the bottom" is because Dionaea are typically found in wet bogs. You don't have to water from the bottom, but leave the pot in a tray that holds water so the soil is constantly wet. Watering from the top is great because it aerates the soil and prevents it from becoming stagnant. You could water from the top and let the water collect in your tray.
