    I would bet it was rot. You should provide excellent air circulation if you plan to grow CPs in a high-humidity terrarium.

    I'd refer to the Greenhouse/terrarium forum for more information on how to properly setup a terrarium before acquiring more plants.

    Jim, I left perfection up to God. It be so. We have killed plants, skinned them , stuff'ed them, and mounted them. Was glad they didn't need the glass eyes.

    I remember this spring, my son had two nice VFT's. I thought I would do him a favour and cover them with the clear plastic dome the containers had. They would then have more humidity and be happier.

    They were fried to a crisp...he claimed for damages and we came to a cash agreement- no lawyer was involved. >;-D

    Different plant, Hellz. Reacts differently than a VFT. Terrariums are OK, but outdoor growing kicks butt.

    nepenthes advive, find a sunny window buy a manny herera(i realy recomend!) put it in a foot across pot and in a year it will get Huge and you will have a 5 foot tall house plant. nepenthes ar pricy so i dont have many, i realy only want rokko.

    I have killed many venus fly traps, i still do today and the only way i can grow them is in a bog garden. then they spread like weeds
