    Observations....

    As i was taking some shots of some of my lasiantha plants i noticed something interesting.
    I grow my pygmys in a small greenhouse. Because of its location, the greenhouse gets more light on one of the sides so i ocasionaly rotate the pots to keep the plants growing strait up and not lean on the side. Those of you that grow scorpioides, lasiantha or dichrosepala i'm sure you noticed many roots sent from the upper part of the plant or from above the soil level. I thought they are used by the plant just as any other roots....i'm so blind! They are more than that! As the plant leans one side, a root is going to be formed and used primarly to support the plant weight and keep it of the soil surface.

    lasiantha







    scorpioides


    I'm not feeding my vft so it turned to cannibalism!.......or maybe it's a new cultivar....i will sell it for 100$


    see you!

    Wow, great dew pics, and cool observation. Thanks for sharing.

    So your VFT actually produced a trap inside of another trap, on the same leaf? Awesome!
