    Cool

    I kind of welcome the warm weather back although I'm likely to be complaining about it later in the year.

    My siow-siow gracilis mother-plant is done with scale insects and it's looking like a few strands of grass instead of a beautiful bouquet of pitchers! WAHHH...

    Anyone have problems with pests besides algae in your sundew pots? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    No, I have ants crawling around my VFT and my tiny D.intermidate (which I accidentally dropped there while feeding my D.intermidate with ants). [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
    Do ants usually crawl around carnivorous plants? Is it because of the sweet nectar these plants produce? They don't want to be eaten on purpose, do they?) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] They can't really do any damage to my plants, right?

    Thanks,
    Jason
