    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.
