    Iguana question!

    Would a standard Black Light work for supplying an Iguana with UV rays? i have a heat light for him already, and the tank sits under my floursecent lights for my VFTs, so lighting isnt a prob, im just not sure if he will get enough UVA or UVB, im not sure. Im new at this whole game.

    Question about flours blubs

    Question about traps turning red!

    I have a silly question. In order for traps to turn red, do the inside of the traps themselves need to get alot of light, or does the whole plant? Alot of the traps on my VFT's are facing down, or out, but not up where the light is comming from.

    White mold

    I've been keeping my VFT's in a 5gallon tank under flourescent lights, with a plastic cover with holes to keep in humidity. Apearently, this has promoted some fungus on ONE of my plants in there. After flushing out the plant, removed the plastic cover to get more air moving around. That should...

    Good idea or bad idea

    Is it generally a good idea, or bad idea to cut off dead or dieing traps. Would it help so the VFT would conserve energy in not trying to make thats trap grow, or could the VFT benfit in some way from a dead or dieing trap. Thanks for the input! Also, dead/dieing traps look ugly

    I think i burnt my plant

    After asking what sunburn was, i think i may have done it. Most of the 1 VFT is fine, except for 1 trap, it stayed closed, became deformed, started turning yellow, and today i start to see it turn black around the edges. I have another VFT that has almost double the size of traps and seems to be...

    Hiya, my plants havnt been getting much light since i got them, and i recently invested in quite a nice lighting setup, now they have been getting around 12+ hours a day of flourescent light. Since then, they have been getting redder in the middle on the stems. I have heard of sunburn, but wasnt...

    Quick question =)

    will too much light kill a VFT? I have set up a terrirum with a shoplight hanging over it with 2 cool white 30watt bulbs. IF i were to leave them on over night and durning the day, would it hurt the VFT, or help it with alot of light, thanks!

    Im thinking about getting a nepenthes

    Im debating on whether or not to get a Nepenthes. After looking at some of hte pictures, i see they can get pretty large. Are there certain types, or ways to grow them to keep them smaller? Also, would they thrive well in a terriarum with VFTs? Thanks for the info

    Woo hoo!

    So i went today and got a 5 1/2 gallon terrarium. Basic glass tank. I also picked up a plant light that mounts to the wall. I set it up over the tank. I lined the outside of the tank with aluminum foil, expect for the side facing my window, to keep more light in there. (Got that tip from...

    Hiya, got a question

    Heya everyone, i just picked up my first sundew today. I went out to get another VFT and saw a sundew and thought they looked interesting. What kind of care do these guys need? Just water and light like VFT's? Do you feed them if they are indoor plants? Thanks!
