    Really nice plant.
    Even better, though, is Samuel Adams. YUM

    That's the very same colony of 'Long Arm'. I have yet to perceive any seeds, covered or uncovered, cultivated or left alone, germinate.

    Is it normal for D. regia to bend around its prey? I came home to feeding fest amongst the sundews and butterworts. The D. regia had 4 winged critters and was erect at that time. But this morning the leaf is bent over 90 degrees, still full of dew, apparently not stressed out.

    Jim, your Regia is looking much better. Keep feeding it! The premature death of your leaves makes me wonder if your media is either too waterlogged or too dry (I'm guessing the first), but you mentioned how you don't think this is the case.
    Here is a pic I posted before that shows how much D. regia can curl on its prey (3 weeks after receiving this plant from BobZ:


    I didn't know this until last month, but the leaves will actually uncurl all the way back again after they've eaten everything AND they will produce huge dew globs again. What an awesome plant!

    The hardest part is providing the day/night temp differential.

    For fun, here's an old pic of a Regia tentacle coiled up around a fly




    Forked Regia?
