    Has anyone had any success with the seeds? This species hasn't taken off like I thought it would.

    Nobody said this was an easy species to cultivate. See the requirements in this video



    A new active trapping mechanism for carnivorous plants has been described - catapult flypaper traps (see above video) and the associated journal paper in PLOS One:

    http://www.plosone.org/article/info%...l.pone.0045735

    Congratulations to Siegfriend & Irmgard Hartmeyer, The Plant Biomechanics Group, University of Freiburg, Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany and especially Richard Davion (acknowledgement and literature citations) for their contributions on the investigation and description of this mechanism.

    Just some numbers from the above paper (and video):

    "The duration of the smooth motion in some tentacles can be as fast as 75 ms (Video S4), with a maximum tentacle head velocity of 0.17 ms−1 and a maximum acceleration of 7.98 ms−2 (Fig. 3 and S1)."

    This video was great. Thanks for sharing this.

    This plant is intriguing on so many levels. The "Diva"!

    Thank you Richard for sharing this with the world.

    Got some seeds of this from the ICPS seedbank a while back, and hoping they'll start sprouting soon, so I may be able to see the action in person!

    Could someone please fill me in on what's happening on this thread? I'm very confused. Has a new species of sundew been identified or something? Is there legitimate literature on it? I'm trying to follow the conversations but they seem jumpy and chaotic; have posts been removed?

    I also tried watching the video at the start of the thread, but I had a very difficult time understanding what was going on.

    Don't worry, I have no idea what this thread is about either, and I've been looking at it for months.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Like the other poster, someone challenged the speed of a sundew to that a venus fly trap.
