The only people who are going to grow VFTs upside down are fools in my opinion.
- How is the plant supposed to catch anything like that? For all I know, flies will NEVER go into an upside down VFT trap. Why should they? Its supposed to be a landing pad for the critters. It works well in that role also! Once two flies, in the process of mating, flew by me. One landed on a large VFT trap. The other, close behind, landed there too. Both were toast. And I saw it happen! That was the coolest part. It may catch an occasional crawler, but the majority of the prey will probably escape by falling out of the jaws, or not even notice the trap.
- As was already pointed out, how are the plants going to get much light?
- How are you going to enjoy them? Personally, I don't want to stare at the bottom of a pot; nor do I want to lay on my back and get peat on my face when I try to take a nice look at my plant. And just flipping the plant over won't work. It won't be rigid or sturdy because it hasn't been growing against gravity.
- This is COMPLETELY unnatural, as was already mentioned.
- And, it is a waste of time. You can't water them with the tray system anymore!
