    Take them out of the terrarium, put them outside, and they will catch plenty of their own food.
    VFTs and Sarracenia should not be grown in terrariums..its very bad for them.

    How long have you had them in the terrarium?

    In the long term it may not be good. Most Sarracenia get quite tall so that's a reason. Also they don't need all that humidity. It's just wasting space.

    You can replicate summer months in a terrarium, but how are you going to replicate winter? Terrariums are used to raise humidity, but sarracenia and VTFs can all grow in lower humidity. Growing something in a terrarium that doesn't need to be grown in one just makes you do more work for nothing and instead of benefitting you get alot of negative problems like fungis.

    Look at some of the images from other people on this site(scotty has a link in his siggy to make it easier for you), they grow their plants outside and they are beautiful. I'm interested in seeing some of your pictures to compare.
