    They eat flies, ants, mosquitoes, pretty much any bug that flies into or crawls onto them.

    This thread (HERE) has pictures of some of my plants I moved outside today to feast on black flies that are swarming near the water.

    I did a search and here are some pictures of Cordylline australis:





    Not a lot of terribly useful information in this search, unfortunately.

    I see you are weakening! You are providing more and more reasons why you SHOULD have some CP's, particularly sundews and butterworts. Dogfood in the summer? Please tell us of your painful experiences!

    In all seriousness, there are a variety of genera and they fill many a niche. What you would need to deal with small, flying insects are sundews and butterworts, like the ones pictured earlier. C'est vrai tres facile!

    LOL! You MUST balance your microcosm of an ecosystem with predators that are attractive, effective, and will produce pretty flowers!

    On the serious side, all the Googling I've attempted isn't providing a postive ID. I have another idea...

    There's something slightly amiss in the URL that our forum isn't translating into a picture. I just don't know what it is! And then I uploaded it to my Photobucket account for grins and chuckles. Incredibly it accepted the text string and produced this:
