    Your Vft's look GREAT! Keep up the good work, remember just to water with good water (R/O, distilled, ect.) and keep the conditions its in right now since it seems to work well. Where are you growing it?

    Save the cling film for sandwiches. VFTs can handle low humidity as long as they are well watered or sitting in a shallow tray of water. Mine is outside right now and the humidty is 21%

    The more light you give your vfts the redder the traps become. Which I always find so cool. I give my vfts around 15 hours of lighting in a 10 gallon tank. They seem to love it...I would keep them outside but birds and other animals end up killing the plant. So I figure can not beat them, join them, so I feed them now *the birds outside*.

    Nice to have you on board! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    so if your traps are not red is that bad? recently some are red (big traps )and some have a slight colour of red (smaller traps) .... is this ok? oh and when do summer traps grow and when is it ok to cut black leaves off?

    kindest regards,
