Yesterday, I stopped by a local nursery to get some reeds for an Aldrovanda tank. As I passed through the aisles, on my way to the pond area, I stopped and heard a familiar cry: "Mommy, can I have a flytrap? Please?" And of course, "No, honey, you'd kill it." And he probably would. I picked up a species of Carex (nice variegated one, too) and some cuttings that the manager gave me (a lily and some parrot's feather).
As I strolled down again to purchase them and leave, I decided that the upright nature of the VFTs was quite nice. I opened the top off of the container and checked. Not limp, so it would be a nice addition to my collection.
As I went home, I carefully removed that dumb tube that it was is. As I did, I noticed a bright red band under the trap margins (Poor description = pics needed) and some very nice red coloration for a death-cube. Pics to be added.
And now a question: Do any of you have a plant like it?
EDIT: Here's a picture that might represent it well. Elgecko, do you mind?
