    Yellow Pitcher with a houseguest

    After bringing my young Sarrs inside today I noticed the tiniest of hitchhikers in/on my S. flava:





    Now, as much as I HATE spiders, I'm gonna let this guy live. But if I catch him (her?) outside of the grow-rack........ Smash-City

    Can any bug-expert identify the species?

    I can't identify spyders but I kill things like that on my flavas - their webs make the pitcher not able to catch as much.

    I'd say leave it there. This happens in nature all the time and will provide some great photo ops. Besides the spider might get careless or get knocked in by a large insect - more photo ops.

    Another good thought.


    This morning the little spider was hiding down inside the pitcher. Waiting for the sun perhaps?

    ***I'm pretty sure it's a Flava. That's what the tag says... I got it from a famous nursery out there in California. It's still pretty small...

    lol! its interesting. But I guess I don't have arachnophobia. I was outside yesterday and waiting for a ride and sat on a concrete wall. Suddenly,...I felt something on my neck...I pulled it with my hand, inbetween my fingers and threw it on myleg: a spider. It was soo interesting that i actually let it walk on my fingers...then observed it a bit and let it walk back on the wall.

    lol! I know its OT...but I just felt like telling this story since the "I hate spiders" came up.

    I used to have a six legged spider that lived inside a dried out 'ladies in waiting pitcher'
