    Question Red dew

    Today I was looking at my D. Capensis, and I noticed a glob of red dew on it. I touched it with a toothpick and some of the dew got on the toothpick, and that dew was red too. I touched it with my finger and it feels kindof tingley. Has this ever happened to anyone before?

    Yeah I saw that thread before, but the red dew is only one or two globs, and it didn't irritate my skin, just tingled some.

    i saw the other thread, but this seems interesting. i'm wondering if it's a chemical thing...like if its grown in the most ideal conditions possible, a certain chemical, only produced in those conditions forms in the dew. If you can get an effect on human skin, I'd imagine that your average fly would be history, since normal dew does the job well on its own.
    ...just my speculation

    That would be pretty cool if that happens. I thought the red dew was just the dew on the red tentacles but it was still reddish on the toothpick. I really hope that all the dew turns red.

    A D. capensis that produces a skin irritant is dubious to me.... I'll believe it when I feel it.
