Hey everyone,

I found some little bugs crawling around in my recently germinated VFT and D. binata pots. I tried to get a pic, but couldn't. They almost look like teeny tiny pill bugs. Whenever I try to pick one up, it just jumps to the other side of the pot. I suppose they could be springtails, but I don't really think they look like them and I don't know how they would have gotten into my pots. Should they be a concern? Does anyone know what they are?

Phew! Thanks!

Don't feel bad. Most of them that inhabit the pots of carnivorous plants tend to end up as food anyway.
