    Hi, Do you remember not long ago I showed a photo of a grasshopper enjoying the bromeliad flower. Well, obviously my nepenthes didn't do such a good job of attracting it, since last weekend I saw 'it' or one of its' family happily eating my fireball bromeliad!

    Fortunately for the grasshopper I just took a few shots (with a camera only).
    I'm far too nice to kill it. If it continues to do too much damage I may catch it and put it in my neighbours garden,.. hee hee.
    Happy growing, Neil.

    You should try a new dish - grasshopper satay, or just like what the Thai did - fried.
    Btw, I have potted the fireball you gave me into 2 pots, they seem happy = no grasshopper [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Jalan Kayu, glad to know your fireball is doing okay and that I didn't pass you any grasshoppers at the same time!
    Your sundew is also doing fine.
    Happy growing, Neil
