    I have found herds of earwigs in my S. purp traps.
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    Wow that's a beautiful plant carnivorkid!

    And as for the argument about whether or not S. psittacina produces Nectar or not, I think that it has it on the tip of it's ala and on the big bulbus head, getting stronger torwards the mouth of the trap.

    the first one is one i grew from those little plastic cubes from lowes and the second red one is a brunswick beauty that was given to me. It usually has alot darker color to it but mine seems to have lots of new shoots and its a nice clump in only having it 2 seasons.
