    The tentacles on that sundew are really unique looking. By the way, the centipede escaped, and the leaf has unfolded [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] .[/QUOTE]
    you probubly don't want to feed centipeads as a rule anyways, they have some nasty chemicals in them that can burn your plants leaves, or stun your toung if you even have the interest in eating one, lol! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    could be, or the ant wasn't stimulating enough. And then, shock could slow them... their are a lot of factors that determin speed. With my VFTs I fined they do best when they have been in a condition type for at least 3 weeks. I'm excited to see how fast I can spruce up my two new babies!

    Thanks for the reply Darcie .

    I think it is shock from moveing them into a new home and going in the mail .

    The plant I have killed the ant and now the leaf is going back to a | shape. Is that what the cape sundew should be doing ?

    that happened to my cape sundew when I fed it a large black ant,too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] everything, exacly what happened to yours happened to mine. I guess they don't stimulate enough. but I think it also depends on the age of the leaf and age of the plant and if they have a flower stalk or not [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    Hope I could help.

    Hi Larry,

    you have to touch the tips of long tentacles several times and after stimulation they will bend within 2-3 seconds.

    The long outer tentacles :
