I have a small (but incredibly fast growing) colony of D. burmannii in a fish bowl terrarium, just chillin' under a single 23 watt compact flourescent bulb, lovin' every second of it. Before I continue, you must understand that the reason I pursued getting this plant into my collection is because of its alleged super-quick moving tentacles. Until this point, the plants have been too small to feed. Very recently I decided that they were big enough to start feeding...FEED ME SEYMOUR! FEED ME NOW!
...Sorry, I got carried away there. I think I played "Little Shop of Horrors" one too many times [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Anyways, I decide to feed my little sundews some bugs, and...how do I say this...WOW! You can actually see the tentacles move in towards the prey, and it's not slow. Just amazing to see in action. Here I was thinking that D. scorpiodes was the fastest in my collection. Boy was I wrong! Yes, that plant is very fast at overpowering an insect, but I think it comes in at a close second to D. burmannii.
Dang, just when I think I have a permanent favorite sundew, one of my other sundews comes along and does something incredible like this. Ah, the rough life of a CP grower [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]
