I have read that the tray method for watering is best for carnivorous plants. I have mine in a terrarium and am wondering if that's ok to use top watering and if that is as effective. I suppose I could cut holes in the bottom of my terrarium, but I kind of would rather not do that. I put about an inch and a half of perlite on the bottom of it and so far have only had to water it once......it's only been about four days since I put them in there.
Also, I used some SUPERthrive to reduce the shock of transplanting. Is it wise to use SUPERthrive every time I water? Or could too much cause stress on the plant?
I read that the growth point should be above the dirt and part of the bulb should be showing. Is it kind of touchy where that is at or doesn't it matter that much? I have always had mine a little deeper down, and it looks funny to me that it is that much above the soil.
Also (last question) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] It is starting to grow stalks for the flowers. I read that you should cut them off for the best growth for the plant. Is it best for you to cut it off so it's as short as possible?
