    Carnivorous plant geek? Me? I'm honored!

    Hahaha, I think it was the honey scent that lured them in. I've noticed that Drosophyllum always seems to have way more insects on it than Drosera (not just mine, anywhere I've seen them for sale together), and I think it's because of the way it smells. Although how the insects smelled the honey with a rotting deer next to it, I'm not sure...

    You think it would be like trying to mask fox urine with lilacs, but I guess not. Maybe they got their fill of salty and wanted something sweet.

    "You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar"

    Yep Drosophyllum seems to be one plant that catches insects really well. But cant seem to hold the larger ones like yellow jackets.
