    Before it had a tantrum this fall and started growing all funky, my P. moranensis some how managed to capture tons and tons of gnats and fruitflies in my house that we didn't even knew existed. In the first 5 minutes of being in my house, 3 were attracted in and killed by it o_O

    My bet would be on P. moranensis: I think they actually attract the flies more than Drosera would. My Sundews occasionally nab some gnats, but the Pings are pigs, and any growroom gnats make for the P. moranensis (and P. agnata) more than any other species.

    Other pings to try would be hybrids between moranensis and ehlersiae. I know a grower who grows these plants on a windowsill with indirect bright light and low humidity. The plants(hybrid between moranensis and ehlersiae from Longwood Garden) grew like mad and she was able to get twenty divisions from one plant in a single year.

    That's why I nicknamed mine Grim [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Too bad it now seems to applie to it's likelyhood to survive. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I just wish I knew what varient it was. Then I could find out if it is actually dieing or just has a weird dormancey. *SOB* I don't know what else to do with it, I've tried everything I can think of!
