    i received a bunch of plants by mail, including 4 different varities of cape sundews and 3 different varieties of flytraps.

    i noticed a day or so later that there are lots of tiny, earthworm-looking worms floating in the tray water. they must have come with the plants because i am keeping them in a terrarium and the other plants in there dont have the worms.

    ive never seen anything like this and dont know if it is a bad thing or if they are good for the plants...

    either way, i dont like em...

    how do i get rid of them w.out hurting the plants?

    thanks!

    they arent translucent.. they are dark...

    look and move just like small (inch or so long), thin earthworms.

    even if they are harmless, is there a way to get rid of them?

    thanks guys
