    Traps,

    No, orchids are not carnivorous. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] But they ARE beautiful and challenging to grow. The flowers are long lasting...up to several months.

    There are several forums dedicated to non-carnivorous plants because so many CP growers grow other types of plants as well, like orchids, bromeliads, tillasandia (sp?), lithops and all sorts of things. So there is an Orchid forum and a General Plants forum which I think is GREAT!

    People share photos and growing tips and ask questions and have fun learning about different plants. Many members have started trying their hand at orchids...maybe you should give them a try. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Oh, im sorry its just ive never seen a flower like that and since they looked so weird i thought they might be Carnivorous. Beautiful white though.

    Hi Larry

    Yeah, I can sorta see it . I have a "cascading style sheets" problem. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] The pic is there but its waaaaay at the top of the screen and cut off at the top. But I can see some of them. Its very pretty! I just bought a new dendrobium...(Lowes rescue)...its got pure white flowers with just a hint of pink blush on the lip. Very pretty! And I have a very unusual Phal I bought. Want to get some orchids pics up soon.
