Well, my little PFT terrarium and 2 VFTs came in today (Woohoo)! The little guys seemed a little 'tired' from their trip, but there was only 1 black pod an both plants had around 6 or 7 healthy looking ones, so I'm guessing that's pretty good.

I dropped the soil I bought into the terrarium and had to add a bunch of water since it was bone dry. It was hard to get it to even look wet at all. Unfortunately, I think I may have went a bit overboard. When I was digging little holes out for the plants, there were actually little puddles accumulating in them. Am I right, Is this too wet? If so, is there any way to take care of that or should I just let it sit a few days and see what happens? The plants are planted directly in the soil (no pots).
On a side note, about how wet should I keep them? Also, should I water the soil near them, or water the soil off away from them and let the water seep over to their roots?
Any suggestions would be appreciated...Thanks for reading!
