    i just bought a vft from a green thumb store and it looks very good.
    my mom saw it and wanted me to get rid of it, but i dont want to, and my brother keeps messing w it, im plannin on leavin it outside durin the day and inside during the night, does it need light during the night?
    how often should i water them?
    whats a good place to put them inside? away from people
    also, should i leave the cup on?
    all the pics ive seen dont have the original pot and cup
    is it good if i raise it n the same pot and cup that came in at the store?
    how do i feed it? do i take off the cup?
    if i leave the cup on(for humidity), wat should i feed it?
    i tried ants but they keep dodging the traps
    wat about dead bugs?

    take the cup off. just keep the soil wet. (leaving the cup on will either cook your plant - via the "greenhouse effect" - or just encourage mold growth)
    if you leave it outside, it will catch all the food it needs.
    and if it's getting a full day's worth of direct sun, no need for light at night!

    on humidity, quoted from the above link:
    it does'nt need much for healthy growing , just remember to keep the soil moist at all times and plenty of air circultion.

    give it as much light as you can. if you're keeping it outside all day, should be just fine.
