    actually, pretty simple.

    Outside, on a northeast facing balcony in West Los Angeles (daytime 70's, nighttime 60's), original medium and pot as shipped by PFT, tray method watering with supermarket distilled water, + affection. About five hours of direct morning So Calif sun, and ambient indirect sun for another 9 hours or so.

    I used to handfeed baby crickets (freezer knockout method, thanks to previous posters for the idea) to all the traps, but now it catches its own stuff, so no more pampering [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    No, I've never covered my VFTs. I use a long, deep tray of water, in which I keep three pots of VFTs. The medium is permanently soggy. The water evaporates pretty fast, and this evaporation is probably what keeps the humidity at an acceptable level. I have never measured the humidity around my plant, but in general, humidity is less than 50% around here, yet the plant seems just fine. I guess I fool him into thinking that he's growing in a bog. Right now, he and the other two (Red Dragon and Green Dragon) seem indestructible.

    Note that the climate in So Cal differs drastically from area to area. What I have here is Santa Monica beach climate, and the same cultivation method may not work for example in the Valleys or the Inland Empire.
