    Your VFTs don't need to be in a terrarium. If you just like the look of it, that's fine. But some people do that thinking they need real high humidity which is not the case. Being enclosed, heat can build up quickly and they don't get much air circulation. Its possible they are getting "boiled" by the heat and humidity. Personally, my VFTs did not do well in a terrarium. Once I put them outside, they have done fine. Humidity is good, lots of air and sun, and they feed themselves quite nicely.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Good luck!

    Yep, I think he has started deterrariuming them already. Granted, some times you need a terrarium, but the care requirments are WAY different from open potted plants.
