    I'm with you BobZ...and I do that as much as possible. In my experience VFTs always do better in pots outdoors (minus marauding squirrels and an overly curious dog...).

    My outdoor plants look a lot like the plants I have seen in the wild. Very healthy and very strong plants.

    I think another key point to take note of, is that in natural sunlight sitting outdoors and not hidden behind a pane of glass, the plants receive quite a bit of UV which to my knowledge would help to "burn" away fungus/molds that normally decimate these plants in an enclosed "protected" environment.

    Well so far so good. I had some plants that were exhibiting the same problems. Of course they were in a tank. I took them out and plopped them on a window sill, a week or so later and there is new growth starting to pop out everywhere.

    Truly can't beat putting them back in nature and leaving them alone...well, except for the ever watchful eye of the obsessive compulsive grower.

    I have to admitt that the extra plants I did not care about got put on the back porch. They are now the biggest and healthiest plants I own.
