    In my experience with my flytrap, I water the soil until it's pretty saturated, so if you put your finger in it your finger's noticeably wet. Not a very technical description, but that's what I did. Then I would wait for about 5 days or so to water it again, but I wouldn't go by a set day, I would check the soil every day or so and just see how the soil is. In my experience they can be overwatered, but some guys say they can't. I found when I had them constantly in soaking wet soil they would grow really slow and the leaves would turn black and die more often, but I don't know. Hope that helps.

    In a terrarium, you want to make sure not to overwater.

    Test the soil ( like geko said )...adding too much water will cause rotting and mold...not good things.

    I have some more information on the CP FAQ site

    If you need some more help too, you can always send me an email
