    The tentacles on that sundew are really unique looking. By the way, the centipede escaped, and the leaf has unfolded .[/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!

    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 ?


    Its my first sundew so im not sure

    Thanks

    that happened to my cape sundew when I fed it a large black ant,too 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
    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 :
