    Post VFT jungle?

    So I was just watering my plants today when I noticed a small beetle crawling around one of my traps. I also noticed a small little spider and it's web near the growing point of my typical. And at times I notice that insects do rest on my plant. Is this normal? I was thinking about it and it would make sense to say that my vft pot is like a jungle for all these insects (who don't get eaten) but I am not so sure. What do you guys think? Do bugs live with your VFTs?

    It's most likely due to the fact that they're attracted to their nectar/aroma.

    Spiders like living around my carnivores, there is this one spider that creates a web from sarracenia pitcher to sarracenia pitcher, he's also not afraid to go inside them and get food that way (he always manages to get out)
