    Unhappy

    I have given it plenty of water - Is there anything else I should know? Should I put it in sun - put it in shade? I DON'T KNOW!

    Fill the trays or saucers the pots are in with water as close to 1 inch as possible. This would be for 3 inch pots or larger. Do not place the plants in direct sunlight as this will cause the water to evaporate and possibly dry up while you are gone. I place mine behind a bamboo shade when I plan on being gone for a few days. This way they still get light, but its filtered and not harsh.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Question

    Hi I'm back - My vft is great - Nearly all the traps are open again also I tried getting the exoskeletons out - It was hard! One snapped shut - Whoops!

    I have an idea that I havn't tried but would be cool;

    What if you got one of those crickets you can get and tie a thin piece of string around it. then place it in the trap and it should close - Then when digested pull it out with the string!
    Do you think it will work? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
