    Unhappy

    I repotted my vfts, which had started to clump, and separated them into two different pots. One of the plants is doing ok, but the other has gone pretty limp. I think this is usual after repotting, and I wanted to know if I should try to feed it something. Would the energy required to digest an insect be too much for it to be worth feeding? And, should I introduce them to sunlight slowly? Any help would be appreciated. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Put them in sunlight. It is quite common for a venus flytrap to look ill after reppotting, dony worry, they will recover quickly.

    Hey Warlock. I have heard that SUPERthrive works really well with that. I just transplanted mine put a drop of that in some water and watered them with it, and they perked up the same night. They are not quite settled in yet and growing real fast....but they seem to be stable. It's not really a fertilizer, but it has a lot of vitamins essential to plants. I've heard it's great, and am just starting to use it. I got mine here:

    Good luck!

    Thanks, firewired. My one vft that was kind of limp is starting to perk back up. I guess it was just shocked. I've been keeping both of my vfts inside so that they don't get sunburned. Is it ok to start feeding them again?
