    Ok,It`s traps can get to be up to 2 inches,DO NOT use tap water,you realy can`t over feed a vft as long as the insect is less then 1\2 the size of the trap,and last but not least have fun!

    go to my care sheet , tap water is not good unless you have contacted your water department and asked how soft the water is , you should not keep feeding the plant or playing with its traps continuesly , it may be overfed and this may weaken it rather then give it more energy , they usually get about 6 inches in diamter , they don't get big like the size of cars .

    You're trying to find out how 'Hard" your water is. In other words what is the amount of Total Disolved Solids (TDS) in your tap water. The lower the number, the 'Softer' the water. I can't remember what the recommended level is for water to be save to use on CPs, but I'm sure somebody can tell you (and remind me! ).
