I cleaned up and pruned my terrarium yesterday because the plants were looking not so good. I unpot some utrics and nepenthes and what do i see poking out of the soil...? A worm, and there were more in the soil too. I can't understand how they got in there, it's soo ridiculous. I repotted alot of plants into fresh medium removing the worms ( there were'nt that many but they do cause alot of trouble)

Hopefully i removed them all and did'nt miss any because worms are only good for gardens not for cp's.

Must be something about utrics that attracts the worms. I am also having to repot my utrics because they aren't doing well. I have found worms in several of them. The only thing I can think of that would allow worms to get into the pots is setting the pot on the ground to drain through when I flush them out. I have now made it a rule to always keep them in a water dish when they are near the ground to discourage worms from getting into the pots.

I've found a worm in my Sarracenia soil before. Funny because all of my plants are on the 2nd story balncony and the media was 1-2 years old.
