    Check this out, bog Cobra out of place

    I spotted these Darlingtonia sprouts peeking up amongst a clump of VFT in the bog. It seems one of the bog cobras is sending out some stolons and decided this looked like a good place to sprout, haha.

    Good luck removing them from that crowded clump.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    I think the Darlingtonia will look really cool emerging from that field of flytraps.

    But they would compete with each other for growing room.

    Pretty good camouflage, as long as it stays all green.

    Just like they do in the wild with other plants.
    Looks good and is a more natural setting IMO. Traps don't naturally grow with cobras but I doubt it matters to them.

    Whenever I see in situ photos of Dionaea there're always rushes, grasses, and other random stuff poking out from between the traps.

    Nah, no need to remove them. The cobras send out stolons that sprout up even through the thick mat of mazus around the bog edges and that VFT is a Dente variety, which grow like weeds even through moss and weeds. Cobras benefit from growing with moss or other cover as it keeps the roots cool in the heat of summer. It will be interesting to watch what happens with these though.

    Part of the bog where the cobras have been growing for a few years, started off with one plant and it multiplied. Pic taken today.
