    They usually just start to drool.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Im not too sure its only been cyclosecta that has done it for me (numerous times). I was as surprised as you are the first time it happened to me! haha

    NaN: They definitely do "drool", what I meant was a large (comparitively) spider placed on a leaf usually won't start to drool. With smaller insects (melanos) the drool is much more noticeable as seen in your photos. Your average Pinguicula wont make enough fluids to get the same effect when it comes to large insects.

    A lot of species will have the pronounced curving over when given food, but typically only if the food is near the edge of the leaf. My P. grandiflora do this a lot. Just depends on health of the plant, size of the food (medium-sized food items, like whole bloodworms, get the best reaction without damaging the leaf), and of course species. Thicker leaved Mexican species won't curl.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    This is from the first day on my phone:


    This is from just now, 28 hours later:


    My grandmother poked the spiders so they got moved. She doesn't understand English...or at least pretends not to so she can do whatever she wants. *sighs*

    I never knew that pinguicula make so much dew when they're eating.

    This is a day after it caught the mosquito.
