    Unhappy

    Hey, just bored and curious, what's the weirdest thing you've ever found in one of your plants?

    I once found what looked like an eyeball while cutting open one of my dead nepenthus'. That kind of scared me...

    Not mutch weird happens to me. Umm... nope nothing unusual besides the fact that one of my birds cant slow down once she starts flying a wall or a landing site being her way to stop. And often the momentum of the landing makes her fall off perches, but thats all
    that makes no logic

    I was selling some plants at a flea market. I noticed that on one of the S.flavas about 1/3 the way down the pitcher was a line about 1/2 inch long. I thought that maybe it was from moving the plant around getting to the flea market. Later in the day the line kept getting bigger. Then I notice the line was moving. I looked closer and it was a yellow jacket that had been caught in the pitcher was chewing his way out.
