For that water, if you specifically have reverse osmosis filtered water it's okay to use that water. You'll know if you take a look under the sink - big tanks, and labeling should tell you. Plus, it's rather expensive. Other than that, everyone is correct in saying that tap is a no-no.
As for your plants, if you can take a picture we'd all love to see them! We can probably tell you what kind you have, too!
I have recently recieved my first venus fly trap.
It is kind of small and i do not know when it will
be able to eat insect. Someone told me that
it will begin eating insects when the trap begins to
turn red on the inside. Is this true?
thanx a bunch.
The traps can start eating insects as soon as they open, it doesn't matter what colour they are.
Once the trap has finished basic development it will start to open (from then on it can eat insects), bear in mind though that the trap will carry on growing even after it has opened up for the first time. I am not so sure what effect feeding an insect to it straight away would have on the growth rate [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
