    Talking An innovation...

    So today I got my D. binata var multifida, and I decided to round up all the non-Nepenthes plants in my collection to put them together. My mom's been bombarding me constantly about simply dumping VFT pots and droseras randomly all around her precious garden well FEAR NO MORE, MOM! Look what I've done!!



    Total cost=2USD (the net, the pebbles and perhaps, the bricks? )

    I'm pretty sure this won't collapse. It sure could use some room for improvement considering it's something thrown up in 5 minutes

    Haha, nothing like a super cheap fix!

    Only thing I'd worry about (and I know you said you're not too worried about it, but I'll say it anyway. XD) is a cat or squirrel or SOMETHING coming along and jumping on top of it and pulling the cover in, bringing the rocks with it which would subsequently land on plants. >.< Even a good gust of wind might accomplish that. Or, you tripping on something and knocking it around. O_O

    One idea (also pretty darn cheap) would be to build a simple little frame out of PVC. Zip-tie or glue to the cover to the frame and you'd probably make it a a good bit safer, probably for not more than $5. Something to think about, anyhow.

    Totally off-topic, though: those rocks are really pretty. Are they naturally that white or is it some camera trickery?

    Hiya reaper, those pebbles are naturally milky, with white powder over it. I suspect it's marble (or some limestone). It's very common around here.

    While I AM worried, I'm pretty sure it's bulletproof I might get rid of the rocks on top instead and use something less......dangerous. Though I doubt that the animals will bother about the plants. It's crystal clear to them that these are PLANTS and not FOOD. The monkey doesn't even bother about my shadehouse, knowing that inside are worthless plants (to them).

    I am really sure that the bricks won't get toppled by wind alone, it rained heavily after that and so far, no faults! Hehe.....

    You never know, while it may look sturdy it could eventually fall. I think you should go with what reaper said as it is a very easy/cheap/solution. I tried this once and it crushed my vfts

    Apparently, they only drink from the pitchers when they're thirsty.

    Is that sarcasm I'm detecting?
