    No, but as Tamlin said, with this particular plant, it's not always what it's cracked up to be.
    Not all of these end up really red, and a lot of these will form hiberculum if the temps cool enough.
    I still think it's a great filiformis.

    I agree, it is a very graceful and beautiful plant and my favorite of all the D. filiformis forms. I find the color deepens as the season progresses.

    My little D. scorpioides caught two craneflies...was really rather pathetic to watch them struggle. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I left them because I tried to rescue one from my D. capensis. I pulled it out...it flew up onto the light fixture. Later I came back to find it stuck again...it flew right back into it. I said to heck with it and left it. At least I tried.

    Nice plant and photos Jan. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
