    yeah, that looks pretty much like what i have. maybe only with the exception that mine looks a bit redder (is "redder" even a word?), and i have 3 "heads" in the pot.

    by the way, i have a Dionaea that grows another bult and it growna lot of tiny leaves, and i dont think it's digesting insects properly... i dunno if i should worry or not, what do you think?

    That picture is an old one, before I got decent lighting on it. You should see that species right now! And as soon as I can borrow a computer, I'll post a very red specimen (more red).

    VFT's basically digest the nutrients they need and leave and exoskeleton. So it's probable that things are just normal. As long as it's producing new leaves and ones that exceed the size of the previous ones, all is well.

    Have you always lived in Israel or did you move there from another country?

    Sometimes CP leaves and traps get eaten through by the prey or basically cause "indigestion". VFT's get that from slugs, caterpillars, different kinds of beettles,... If a leaf turns brown you can snip it.

    I can't imagine living in Israel, what with it being in perpetual war readiness, suicide bombers, etc... Would you or your parents be considered a "sabra"?

    lol, yeah, i guess we'd be concidered that...

    as fo rliving in Israel.... i guess it could look weird and hard for people who dont know this place, but other than the politics (and i concider the israeli-palestine quarrel politics), it's a pretty normal place. it's not like you feel it on your flesh every single day, only when things get rough again, and it's been pretty quiet for a while.

    I borrowed a camera from a co-worker yesterday and snapped a bunch of pictures, including some incredibly red sundews. I just hope they came out decently. That and I hope she gets them on disk soon!

    The Middle East is such a hotbed of activity, with much centering around Israeli relationships with its neighbors and of course, oil. America is keen on the doings there, whether it be political, economic, or religious - or the interaction of all 3! So anytime there is anything going on there, CNN is quick to broadcast it to us. You're in a "fishbowl!"

    Hey - do you know the origin of the word 'Palestine'?

    How have your plants been faring these past few days?

    the orogin on the word "palestine"? good question... :P it was the name of the state before israel was established in 1948, but i dont know where it came from. i can ask my mom, i bet she knows...
    the US is keen to be invoulved in everything that's going on in the world, but no offense- your president is a little dumb, so i'm happy we're in good relationship with your country.. after seeing the movie F 9/11 i just dont trust this guy.

    and back to the original topic- my Ping is doing well. im keeping it only slightly moist, and it's now growing 4 new, healthy leaves!! )) still havent tried feeding it yet, i need to find a bug small enough.. the sundew is ok, and Ami (my dionaea and my forum namesake) still have a whole bunch of tiny traps, i hope he'll grow bigger in the next round.

    Bugs small enough? Not sure if this will pass, but you can set up plastic containers of rotting fruit and attract fruitflies. I've done that... but in an attic and in a supply room in a building that a former employer owned. In other words, I had the plants and fruitflies where nobody really cared about. Those are excellent food for butterworts and sundews. You can also buy freezed dried bloodworms that are sold in petshops as fishfood. New growth is a good sign that the plant is acclimating... and that you're doing something right.

    Palestine is a derivative of the ancient and extinct people called the Phillistines. They used to be an annoyance to Israel's kings Saul & David, not to mention the judge called Samson. They weren't nice people. And one can nowadays refer to a person as being a Phillistine as an idiomatic expression, meaning one who is not nice or does something that messes you up. For instance, one could refer to your brother as a Phillistine for taking the family camera to Singapore, "That Phillistine!" Make sense?

    Never saw the movie. Bush means well. He just misjudged a lot, mainly how your neighbors would react to the actions taken.

    So who do you think will be the next Prime Minister? And who do you think will become America's next President?
