    Ok,It`s traps can get to be up to 2 inches,DO NOT use tap water,you realy can`t over feed a vft as long as the insect is less then 1\2 the size of the trap,and last but not least have fun! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    go to my care sheet , tap water is not good unless you have contacted your water department and asked how soft the water is , you should not keep feeding the plant or playing with its traps continuesly , it may be overfed and this may weaken it rather then give it more energy , they usually get about 6 inches in diamter , they don't get big like the size of cars . *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    You're trying to find out how 'Hard" your water is. *In other words what is the amount of Total Disolved Solids (TDS) in your tap water. *The lower the number, the 'Softer' the water. *I can't remember what the recommended level is for water to be save to use on CPs, but I'm sure somebody can tell you (and remind me!
