Hello there. I'm a flytrap newbie from London (at the Moment) Russian though. Anyway, I just got my first flytrap and I want it to do really well. I understand that the pot cannot be submerged in water so I have to fix it so that it barely touches the water. Any ideas on how I can do that? Another thing, can I use water like "Vitel" for watering? Or can I use boiled (and cooled of cause) water? Please help me. I want to be good to my plant and give it all it wants when it wants it [Smile]

I will not be able to set up a terarrium till next thurs. [Frown] Is it ok for my little one? Can it wait that long? My room has a constant temperature of 21 C. And I try to put in in the shower room for a while after I use it (for himidity etc) I hope it can make it till next thurs, fri.

How big does it have to be btw? (the terratium) how many litries. can I keep it in the pot in there or would it be better to put it directly in. I think it would be easier to control the saturation of the moss this way.

Mkay, I'm keeping the plant in the warmest (i think) place in my room and got some deionised water for it too. It's as good as destilled, isn't it?
