Hi, I have a Venus Fly Trap (Green Dragon) and a Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia purpurea) coming from this website in a few days, and I have a few questions. The plants are going on my windowsill in my room.
1) How well do the two plants attract ants? I've currently got a moderate ant problem in my room, and the little buggers won't go for the traps I have set up. Will the Pitcher Plant attract them as well as, say a glass of orange juice? (I used to have a glass of orange juice in my room before I went to bed, and when I'd wake up, there'd be at least 6-8 ants in the empty glass).
2) The only window in my room faces to the south, so I only get indirect light. This is compounded by the fact that an overcast sky is a common occurance where I live (South Florida). I was going to get a grow lamp to make sure they get enough light, and I wanted to know what kind of bulb I should get, and if the grow lamp would keep them healthy.
Thanks for your help. *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
