I don't know about Earthworms...I would imagine they would be ok. I use slugs cuz we seem to have an abundance of them in my backyard.

Simplest explanation. An AQUArium is a tank filled with water (aqua). A TERRArium is a tank filled with soil (terra, meaning earth). Terrariums aren't as filled with medium as much as aquariums are (medium=earth vs water), but that's just technicalities ;)

we fed it a spider today. It was pretty sweet! It was still on it's web hanging from the celing, so we just got the little plant put the spider in one of the traps and watched it get closed into a slow and probally very painfull death! Nature kicks arse!

Proud owner of a baby venus fly trap!

I buy at least one a year, but they always die. This year I saw them on display at OSH. Usually they look like they already have 1 foot already in the grave. This time they looked super healthy, and thriving. I just took them out of there little pots and made a home for them. I plan on keeping them indoors. I had this Crystal fruit bowl. Its not really deep, almost like a concave plate, no more than 3 inches high, with a gradual slant. I covered the whole bottom with some white little rocks all over the bottom. Then I mixed up some violet african soil with peat moss and filled it up making a little hill. Moistened it with some bottled water (thats all I had). I then Transplanted my two little babys. Said a prayer, I am hoping they will like their new home. Both had outgrew their little nursery pots. Wish me luck! :) :lol: :D

Interesting topics of Dionea here..:D
a couple of days ago, I've just had my plant structure and development class and one of my friend asked this question...
"if the venus fly trap eats insect (i.e. fly) then, where's the metabolic wastes of that thing??"
My lecturer said, "good question but need really hard answer because it haven't been experimented yet"...

is it really like that? I'm start to curious also...:?

metabolic wastes? what ever do you mean? the plant absorbes only what it needs...

BY the way, my dionea dies a few months ago. I went to camp and my mother watered it every day eevry day for 2 weeks.
