    Ugh, it looks like you hawked one on the soil and stuck a flower in it!

    Are the purple points Summer leaves starting to grow out?

    The petiole is very thick (succulent-like) and covered with white reflective hairs and even mostly subterranean. Even though they are very small they seem to be well protected from drying. I'm guessing that since the lamina is so tiny that prey does not play a significant part in this species life cycle.

    Despite my phlegm joke(I was kidding), I think it's a neat plant...I imagine you would need to liquify it's food(or when you cut yourself...)?

    I never actually fed those pings... maybe they'll really take off and there might even be signs of visible growth if I fed them. Who knows?

    Anyway, thanks for all your responses. I can't believe I had this plant for 6 months and yet knew nothing about it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
