    If it is in a tray with about an inch of water it will do fine. Opinions may vary but works for me.

    Hey, it is fine to be weird. If you to personally get to know me, I would be one of the weirdest guys you know.
    One inch of water would be fine. Let it drain and dissapear and refill it. Anyone can correct me if I am wrong. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I don't know...I rammed it in there pretty good. It was ticking me off [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] and my luck with vfts and dormancy. I thought I was going to kill my vft. Certainly can not help my chances...it will be meeting a certain death by Nep [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] . Teaches you one thing never try anything new k/d. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Gahh!!!!! I hated dormancy. It was my first and it was horrible. But I learned a lot and now I think I am more prepared for this next winter.

    I fed a ladybug to one of my vfts once. I had heard that they wouldn't digest any kind of beetle because of the hard exoskeleton but I tried it just for fun. It did digest it, but I think it was easier because it was a small, baby ladybug.

    If your plant is in full sun, you can give it a lot of water and let the tray run dry for one day a week. If your plant does not have full sun or it is winter, just keep the soil damp, don't let water just sit stagnent in a tray or you'll get crown rot. Actually, it better to just keep the soil damp at all times, but if direct sun it can be hard to keep it from drying out to fast.

    P.S. Mine have names too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
