I like terrariums because you don't have to water them.
The plants are directly under the lights now, in a box with no lid.
Nothing wrong with growing VFTs in a terrarium if it works for you. If it doesn't work out, time to try something different. I grew my second VFT in a terrarium (actually a 1 gallon mason jar) for over 12 years until my parents let it dry out when I was away for school.
So despite what everybody says, it can be done.
Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
This is simply useless. I shouldn't have kept on replying.
I'm out of this.

Keep it that way.
What we have here is a failure to communicate. Some men (and children) you just can't reach. So we get what we have here today. (Dead and doomed VFTs). Which is how he wants it. Well, he gets it.

Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
Those plants really shouldn't be in clay pots. This is a really minor issue, and the plants are already in conditions that will make them suffer, so it won't even make that much of a difference anyway. I'm only mentioning this because it just goes to show that prior research is lacking, or prior research is being ignored. In short, when you face information that tells you that what you're doing is incorrect, go big or go home. I just hope that going home doesn't inadvertently kill your plants, even though it will.
Please read the FAQ link I posted. It has everything you need to know, written by a friend who knows his stuff, just like all these fine folks here.
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
I changed all the clay pots today.
Poor plants probably want me to stop messing with them.
The plants are interesting, so they are worth the effort.
I did read it =) Thanks for the link!
