    Excellent! A happy looking plant and some great shots. I've come to the conclusion that the D. venusta is the best looking of the Drosera in my collection. It's the second best bug catcher of my dews (the first being my D. glabripes).

    How do you catch your ants?
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Thanks! Yeah, it's definitely one of my favorites.

    I just look under some rocks where an ant colony seems to always be and just grab a few with my fingers. There's always hundreds of them.

    Thanks guys! It's kind of interesting; before, when I was new to this hobby, I'd think any sundew with dew on it was a miracle, and in photos of well-grown plants, I couldn't imagine how they got like that. Then, the way I raised my plants got better and better, and eventually, when I see my plants like this one, a plant that would have amazed me a long time ago, just seems so normal and nothing special to me, as long as I'm the one growing it. I dunno, I just get this feeling whenever I get compliments like this on the plants that I grow. When I see them everyday, their charm seems to leave, but in pictures, they seem different.

    Lol I dunno, I just needed to say that. Not sure if you understand what I mean.
