    He is serious, but not about getting advice. He seriously wants affirmation for his own ideas.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    In other words, "I'm going to do what I want and I expect you guys to tell me it's a great idea whether it is or isn't"

    I'm not sure why advice was even asked for here b/c the OP is just showing us pics while turning a deaf ear.

    I wondered about that when I added my turtle post

    Key words there-- my own experience. Fact: Feeding does make flytraps grow faster. Much faster. I do not know if I personally could get flytraps to flowering size in under a year, but I believe Francois.

    Flyinthetrap, if you are not going to listen to all the people here who actually have experience on this topic, what, precisely, is the point of even asking? You have your recommendations. I suppose there is nothing more to say here, but the advice still stands. You can choose to ignore it or not.

    I am serious about getting advice! I haven't pulled any B52 leaves yet!

    I'll put the plants in the box with no top.

    I killed all the VFTs I ever owned so far =) So I do need the advice!

    I never kept one alive more than a couple years.

    What?! Then why, why are you continuing to use the method which obviously does not work?

    I'll say this one more time: Take the plants out of the terrarium, and grow them outside. If you do not have enough sun outside, then put them under the grow lights WITHOUT the terrarium.
