    If you want to grow one of the speedy ones, burmannii is an easy, accessible choice. If you tease the tentacles with a toothpick or something, you can watch the outer tentacles fold in quickly. As Aslan said, D. capensis has some of the most impressive leaf folding and is very easy to grow.

    "Sundews with mostly tentacle movement, and little or no leaf movement inlude: D. binata, and the Queensland sundews (mainly D. prolifera and D. schizandra)."

    Maybe i'm reading this wrong....but are you saying that prolifera does not have a dramatic leaf movement?!
    It's from your page CPlantaholic.

    Mark, you bring up a good point. I have only been feeding them little amounts of food, since they're being grown in terraria. I suppose that if I were able to feed them large amounts of food without it molding, like I do my D. capensis, that there would probably be a much larger response by the leaf. I will have to edit that page soon.
