    First real signs of life from the D. sessilifolia today!

    Not looking too hot on August 30th, 3 days after arrival.



    Today (sept 8th) at noon.

    As my last update was about the D. sessilifolia, I'll start off this update with it as well.



    It has started to flower!



    I also received two S. x moorei (Walton Co, FL) from Jay Lechtman as a prize for correctly guessing the name of a once popular song that has the number 47 in its lyrics twice. (The answer was Wild Wild West by Escape Club.) I have high hopes for these two.



    The sole pitcher has started to redden up after being outside for a week now, looking forward to see how some fresh undamaged pitchers look!



    D. californica doing well.



    S. minor var. okefenokeensis







    My S. x readei fall pitchers are just starting to open up.





    This pitcher comes with an added surprise.



    VFT with a Genista Broom Moth caterpillar (Uresiphita reversalis) half hanging out.



    This Genista Broom Moth caterpillar (Uresiphita reversalis) has been stuck in this fly trap for the past couple of days. I don't generally feel much sympathy for the insects that my plants catch, but I felt really bad for this one. Half of its body stuck in the trap being dissolved while the other half clings to life.

    Shortly after filming this video I put it out of its misery, for its own sake.

    I saw this ladybug crawling around my Dionaea muscipula "typical" and set up the camera to catch its unfortunate death. Normally I would've moved the ladybug away from the plant as I like to keep them around, but I sacrificed this one for the video. I think it was worth it.

    I stopped filming a bit too early as this bug's struggles were rewarded with its freedom. I should've expected that it would escape from this D. capensis as I have seen this type of bug escape from Drosera before. They seem to have a knack for it.

    Love your work. Those videos had me quite entertained while on lunch today. The suspense you feel when the bug is stomping around inside the flytrap is intense! haha

    Thank you! I try to keep it diverse with all different types of media and content.

    The proper music can totally transform a video, couldn't do it without Kevin MacLeod's vast selection of royalty free music.

    Yeah the music can really make or break it.
