    I sure enjoy Dionaea muscipula, they can really look nice. I like keeping them in little 2" square pots floating in water, reduces the problem of what to do with old leaves, they just rot away. Now if I could only keep the mites away permanently. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]

    If being emersed in water was the scourge of VFTs, their wouldn't be any VFTs. They are frequently flooded in their natural habitat, at least they were before we humans dug drainage ditches around them.

    Water that just sits, and is not changed regularly, is asking for it. Rot thrives in water that just sits. Joe Mazrimas, ICPS founder, installed a drip system, and it percolates all day long. His rot problems from sitting water, has virtually disappeared. Moving water seems to help a lot.

    Yeah that makes sense,but this vft just was put in atray of water last week and we had a few day of rain(6-8").It might have been the plant,who knows.All my other vft grow in deeper pots so the water table is lower,and they grow fine.

    During summer all my VFT's are submerged for a large part and I haven't lost too many of them. The only ones I lost were the ones that were submerged during winter in my garage and that makes sense as cold/wet/dark = rot
