    Brokken: that pick is sweet! I wounder how far up the tree they are. It looks to be quite high.

    I vividly remember accidently drinking a fly that had landed in my soda on my 8th birthday! In a lot of countries eating bugs is an everyday thing. The are very high in protien.

    Frills: I can't take credit for the picture. I did a search on pinguicula hemiepipythica and voila!

    I've eaten a roach and threw up subsequently after.... but did eat some termites for fun.

    So it has a hemi? Sorry for the bad pun... not really.

    Peter D'Amato shows a picture of them growing in ceramic thingys. They really do grow anywhere and the plants have no sense of aesthetics.

    LOL! The termites didn't gross you out but the roach did?

    I grew some of my P.grandiflora on a big chunk of lava rock and plan on doing it with P.gypsicolas this year.The grandiflora did great and I hope they make it thru the winter in my new greenhouse.
