    Can you post a picture of what you mean by not opening?

    How could they have gotten "oil" on them? My experience with oil on plant leaves is that it quickly kills leaves it touches.

    Which Mexican Pinguicula? There are many differences among them.

    I think he means the sticky gunk that the pings use to trap insects. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Doesn't pinguicula mean something like, ''little greasy one''?

    Oil kills plants because its a petroleum, AKA Hydrocarbon, thats why we don't use petroleum based insecticides on our plants, because not only does petroleum do a fine job of killing insects, it will also kill your plant!

    I really think he we using the term 'oil' as meaning the grease, akin to Drosera 'dew'.
