HI, Now before i start, first i just want to say that this was a crazy idea i had when i was thinking of how to keep my new gnat problem under control. Second off, after doing research for about an hour i don't even think i would do it based on the fact that they need acidic soil and water thats very not nutritional lol like rain water cuz it doesn't have the added vitamins/minerals that are in tap and bottled water. And finally i don't even really know where i would get one to be honest cuz i never see them in like garden departments of big box stores. So now that i got that said i want to know if putting any type of carnivorous plant (pitcher plants, flypaper plants, venus flytraps etc...) in with a tort would even be a good idea let alone work, it would probably have to be a tropical species like a which is what i have. Now obviously (if i even did it) they would have to be in their own pot that either is tall enough to the point where the tort has no chance to get to it, or is placed on something that cant be climbed on and that puts the plant high enough because its probably not a good idea to let a tort near something that can possibly not only poison it but also subsequently bite it. i will still accept ideas on how to "take care" of bugs just in case? Please help.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

etiennecancio: perhaps we can try to revitalize the old forums? i always found them to be much more convenient than facebook groups at least hah

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
