Hey, it is fine to be weird. If you to personally get to know me, I would be one of the weirdest guys you know.
One inch of water would be fine. Let it drain and dissapear and refill it. Anyone can correct me if I am wrong.
Gahh!!!!! I hated dormancy. It was my first and it was horrible. But I learned a lot and now I think I am more prepared for this next winter.
I fed a ladybug to one of my vfts once. I had heard that they wouldn't digest any kind of beetle because of the hard exoskeleton but I tried it just for fun. It did digest it, but I think it was easier because it was a small, baby ladybug.
If your plant is in full sun, you can give it a lot of water and let the tray run dry for one day a week. If your plant does not have full sun or it is winter, just keep the soil damp, don't let water just sit stagnent in a tray or you'll get crown rot. Actually, it better to just keep the soil damp at all times, but if direct sun it can be hard to keep it from drying out to fast.
Thanks Darcie, that helps! I try to keep it in the sunlight as much as I can... I put him on a windowsill and keep the soil nice and moist. He has a friend now too! My brother's vft, they named it Audrey.. I know, very unoriginal LOL.
