    HAHA Loser Just kiddin I spose I shouldnt pick on ya since your new

    Ok if you are going to feed your plant dead bugs you gotta wiggle them around to trigger the trap then even after it shuts you need to move it around until it seals its self. A royal pain in the butt if you ask me

    Like PlantAKiss was saying you can catch a bug and put it in the freezer for a few minutes to slow it down a bit. Also you can go to the pet store and buy either crickets or flightless fruitflies (we dont have crickets here ) when you feed them crickets you can catch them by thier legs with pair of tweezers.

    Thanks, I'll try that but if I leave the door open for 5 minutes you'll see a fly flying and sooner or later he's gonna head for the trap, right?

    most likely, just make sure there's no other "food" besides other CP's, and it will come. I'm glad you think we're so nice.
    I am back..

    You wont have to worry about replanting it for atleast a year or 2 possibly longer. You'll know when its time by the roots comming out of the bottom of the pot
