    Capensis stinging?

    one adult, 2 runners. 1 of the runners is in the second photo
    but for some odd reason, the dew stings.
    and i know its not just me, tested it on friends and family
    skin gets red and irritated afterwards too. its pretty odd.
    but while were at it, what form of capensis is it?

    not broad leaf. just the typical narrow leaf. as far as stinging? no idea. i dont think its the dew because the dew isnt chemicaly active. its like our snot i have licked the dew before and my tounge hasnt broken out or anything.

    why would you lick a dew from a carnivorous plant... that's just like drinking the juices from a sarracenia or nepenthes.... gross... try putting your tongue in a venus flytrap to taste the digestive enzyme >_>

    O__O i dont think i'll ever try any of the above.
    but if you really want to tingle your tongue, i dare you to taste SirKristoff's capensis
