    I never tried it. I never even thought about what it'll do.
    There's only one way to find out what it'll do, but remember you're risking your plant.

    hi, welcome! not to say it is the problem. i just wonder how you are getting distilled water with a ppm of about 30? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] all distilled waters i have ever seen read 0 ppm. just by the process of which it is made. are you refering to reverse osmosis water maybe?

    I forgot to mention, the plants are still in the little 3 inch pots I bought them in, which are resting in plastic cups, which are inside the terrarium. I think the problem might be root rot, as I let water sit in the bottom of the cups, which was constantly evaporating and keepin the bottom of the pots fairly saturated. Does anyone know how VFTs might respond to small doses of peroxide? Let's say 1ml of 3% for ever liter of water?[/QUOTE]
    Ah! No, not a weak plant. Bad bad bad!... granted it would eather hurt the plant or decompose so fast that nothing would happen anyways, but still, bad!

    Just let them start to be less saturated.

    Really? Just to make sure, you are aware that adding peroxide to the water is very beneficial to a lot of plants, right? Are VFT's just more sensitive in general? What if I allowed it, say, 18 hours or so to decompose in the water, that way I'd just have aerated water?

    No, I'm pretty sure it says distilled water on the bottle. I see 3 possibilities: 1)my ppm meter isn't properly calibrated, or something's wrong with it, 2)I didn't allow the meter enough time to adjust to the water temperature, 3)safeway has crappy distilled water.

    I recently bought two ppm testers. and I bought a bag of that calibrator stuff. turned out both of them were pretty far off. I would recommend getting some and checking it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The chemistry of CP soil is very different from other plants. VFT's grow in O2 poor soils and upping the amount in the soil will only serve to help any unwanted critters in their.

    The cheapest way to aerate water is to fill a water jug to full of water and shake it vigorously for 30 to 45 seconds or until your arm comes off. Which ever occurs first [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] .
