    Pollen everywhere!

    If you live in south, you probably know that now it's the time that we have pollen everywhere. Didn't think this would be a problem, until this morning when I walked out and checked my CPs and succulents. They were all covered with quite a lot pollens! Should I move them inside? ?

    I highly doubt that pollen would hurt CP's or succulents. Your plants should be fine.

    I didn't think of that. You should probably bring in the sundews. Where are you? My plants don't get covered in pollen during spring here in Ohio.

    Wont the pollen be a food source for the sundews? I think they digest it when they eat insect pollinators . . .

    I wouldn't be too surprised if it does. Sundews have been known to enjoy pieces of cheese! So I wouldn't put pollen beyond them. I haven't started to grow sundews myself yet, but I will soon and I've been reading up on them. Do the sundews seem to be responding to the pollen? If they're leaves are curling up, then they're digesting the pollen.

    I don't know whether to laugh or feel sorry about your Camry.

    actually there's no response at all, they just looked pretty side, looks like the whole leaf was blocked by pollen.
