So I switched to taking pics of that. Then another fly landed on another thread beside it! So there u have it... Phew. I witnessed quite a lot of insect captures in one day [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Awesome! A lot of my sundews aren't big enough to catch flies just yet, but my Cape Sundew and my adelae have actually caught them before. Really cool pics. What kind of sundews are they?

    My D. regia had no less than 6 struggling flies on it yesterday the pig! It is very good at what it does!

    Sundews are really great at catching insects [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Then again, maybe it's becos the caught insects are exposed so they appear to catch the most insects. I had a peep down the pitchers of my Neps... there were just so many dead ants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Anyway, correct me if I'm wrong (cos the plant came as seeds and was unlabelled), I think it's a D.filiformis ssp. filiformis?

    I'll be getting some D.Regia seeds quite soon... Tamlin: are they easy to germinate?

    Many thanks!
