    I have become fascinated, to a certain extent, with the "Tales of Roridula." I guess what people say about the plant isn't THAT fascinating, but I till would love to have one and watch the symbiosis between the plant, the capsid/assassin bugs (are these the same thing?), and the spiders.

    So, do any of you know a good resource for otaining a Roridula? What about the capsid bugs? Spiders?
    Any help appreciated

    Thanks for the offer Arie. However I'm not sure if I have anything that would be of interest to you. I am recovering from a bit of a "CP Vacation" so my collection is down to N.ventrata, N.Khasiana x ventricosa, a most-likely dead N.alta, a clump of D. spatulata... I think. I also have a just-out-of-TC S. rubra (?), a P. moranensis, and a P. primuliflora.

    My species are pretty much the generic forms of each genus. However, I guess if you wanted an N. khasiana x ventricosa basal offshoot, I could work on that. Other wise I could give you a P. primuliflora plantlet.
    Again, I don't really have much.

    Anyone know where I can buy some seeds or a specimen?

    Actually, they are not quite microscopic. Here's a pic:

    Actually, I believe the assassin bugs associated with roridula (Pameridea roridulae and P. marlothii) are easily visible:



    Couple of websites I found:

    Hope this helps.
