    Good topic idea!

    Heres my Venus Lizardtrap:


    And I posted this one in another topic, but Ants love my N. rafflesiana and the raff loves 'em back!


    It also seems to have a taste for roaches..

    *EDIT*
    Almost forgot, using teamwork some D. burmannii were able to take down a damselfly:

    I wish, weird thing though, I looked for it a couple days later and the lizard and trap had disappeared. I have found baby lizard skeletons inside dead traps before though.

    How big does it get?

    -Ben
    about 1.5-2x the size of a normal one. They make big stems, too.

    As for feeding, I like to use fertilizer on all my plants. Bugs are too... buggy... and the carcases ruin the asthetics imo.

    Except for the temperate genera in the bog. They fend for themselves.

    Oh, come on! That's the best part! Seeing all of the plant's past victims.


    Man I wish I had a working camera!

    You really think so? I think a plant looks best clean. All those tentacles.. that's hot.

    What is the proper term for tentacles? "stalked glands?"

    I like hairy sticky plants.

    I LOVE TRICHOMES!

    Lil' gnats usually seem to disappear after they get digested, and so does bloodworm and stuff, but huge house flies are kinda ugly, so after they're done digesting, I just take off the carcass.

    For some reason, after I read Clint's post, I imagined a fat man without a shirt rubbing D. capensis leaves all over himself. Maybe I shouldn'ta posted that....
