    Yes it would be better to take soil along with the plants out then plant the whole clump instead of separating them. That way your plants will hardly notice the switch. If you just turn the pot upside down everything should pop out in one big clump. No sense in ruining a pot unless you have to.

    If your plants go into shock EVERYTHING will slow down which means don't feed them cause the bug will more than likely rot before its digested. Personally I'd wait about 2 weeks before I let them eat again.

    Ok, cool, I'll repot them this morning. I'll be real careful with the roots and turn the plant upside down so I get the whole clump of soil. I really appreciate all the help guys, thanks a lot. We've been watering the two younger plants in the terrarium with a turkey baster. Is there a better way or is this a good thing to do? Thanks guys.

    best way to water a terrarium is to go out to a local store that has a garden section and get a plastic bottle with a spray nozzle on it that has like a mist setting and a single stream setting.i think there called misting bottles.once you have this set it for a single stream of water and aim on the side of the terrarium and spray so that way the water hits the side of the terrarium and runs down into the potting mixture,that way the water is distributed evenly and the plants are not disturbed by the jet of water.

    isnt it great that we have such a good community of people willing to help each other [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
