Well intensive reading there...
Message to ALL, I MEAN ALL
LIVE IS VERY SHORT FOR ALL OF US, SO WE SHOULD ALL BE EXTRACTING AS MUCH AS WE CAN ON METHODS THAT WORK WHILE WORKING ON IMPROVEMENTS AT THE SAME TIME...
LEARN FROM OTHER PEOPLES MISTAKE's but improve...
I think the problem here is this, there are so many clever people some with a lot of wisdom, however I see them they forget they was once like you, and I think some times you can't beat experience.
What the people forget here that have garden's is that there are people here that don't have that, yet share a interest in keeping VFT. But then if I feel that new methods should be tried and tested, reason more people without gardens could keep them.
I am like half and half where I live.
I stress this too I have grown my first on a window seal, I have been told it will die not enough light ...
The Answer is this they was wrong totally, I have RED TRAP's inside that's Natures point in proving it, I have 3 baby's this year, it's flowered it's seeded, and I have put it in the lobby last year in Oct for domency (Which was the only good advice I can say I got on that), now that's a year later, I think that's a successful year.
I could go on but, I know this much that there is always someone smarter out side of the box than in... Many people here live inside their box, as they have mastered they way.
Take for example macro vision on video or DVD, can't be broken CRAP, someone out side of the agency was smarter to break through, point I am making here is that the average joe could not do it but 1 man changed that for the many... as with the light bulb, or even the telephone .... & yet we all take that for granted, it only takes one to crack the method.
And you know what fire works well to give light as does candles, or even shouting accross the room, to commuicate.
That's how I see the people that knock people on there quest, because that one person may just may find a method that works where the others either failed or never bothered!. Because there happy in there comfort zone.
So go learn all you can from other's, and pioneer new ways... Else we would all still sitting in a dim room with candle light a camp fire and shouting accross the room, with no fly traps...
Help guys, as the people do give up, that's not what we are here for... Improve on the methods that already work ;-)
I said my bit.... But it's the truth and honest! It's what I have seen over the last year of being here.
well noddy, we are just trying to help him keep his one flytrap, not saying: it'll die if you keep it on that windowsill. It will likely die if you keep it under lights, in a terrarium, or at a windowsill if you are new to the hobby. He is free to do what he wants after this one, and all the rest of the flytraps, but right now, we're trying to help him. I also remember my first flytrap. kept in a planted terrarium under artifical lights, and it died in a few weeks. i also came back from nc my first year to see them all dead, which still maybe beats me, although it probably had something to do with light.
