    I can't pinpoit what you're doing wrong from what you posted, but here are some concerns.

    How warm is very warm? Is it between 85f and 100f?

    What is the humidity level? It should be between 60% and 100%

    How much light is it getting? It needs bright sunlight all day long

    How much water are you giving it? The best way to make sure it's getting enough water is to use the tray method. Put it in a small tray, bowl or shallow dish. Put the water in the dish and let it soak up in the soil. Let the water evaporate from the dish. As soon as all the water is gone add more water.

    What kind of soil did you repot with?

    ok would not say it goes over 100',but not very humid were it was,(now moved to the bathroom).
    yes had sunlight all day also has in bathroom,sounds like it may have been the watering that killed it,never kept it sitting in water,just kept the soil moist,fixed that now.
    i repotted with with normal compost for potting plants, [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Paul...that soil is not ok...sounds like it's the problem actually. Vft's have very sensitive roots and the nutrients put into normal everyday potting soil will burn them up.

    Vertigo is right. Potting soil will kill it. Not maybe, but defiantly will kill it. You need to repot it with peat moss and perlite at a 1:1 ratio now. Don't wait. Read what's been going on with this guys plant. It'll explain it all.

    If you have low humidity you don't want your temps to be very high. If your humidity is low keep your plants around 85f.
