    My Lowes S. purpurea - then and now

    So back in April I picked up my first death cube plants. One of them being a fairly healthing looking little S purpurea. At first it didn't want to seem to grow at all, it probobly went about 2 months with no signs of new growth.

    And then, all of the sudden, I couldn't stop the thing from making new traps if I tried. This is what it looks like now after a summer of gorging on flies and yellowjackets.

    Very Nice!

    Death Cube plants actually prove to exceed expectations in many cases - all they need is a little TLC. Seems like you have done very well with it.
