I just wanted to share a pic of my VFT's covered completely with water. This happens out in nature so I figure I should do the same taking into account they are growing in a big container having closet 2ft of soil below. The chances of my plants rotting are very unlikely.
I also met with Wahter(another member), and he gave me Sarracenia wrigleyana in exchange for other plants I had.
I also flooded the darlingtonias (they grow pretty slow) but are growing well, and I am giving them occasional floodings and flushing the water instantly ( just like in their ecosystem).
The pic of the ceph, I used my index finger for comparison of how big the pitcher is. This plant is growing really well and I am not even watering, the way I water this plant is very uniquely. I use a droplet and 1 time per week I am simply dropping 8 to 10 drops of water in the crown ( that's it! ) I am also using a fertilizer(from lowe's) and I am filling the pitchers up every two weeks. I am using 5ml of fertilizer per half a gallon (it is a very weak fertilizer solution but it works great for cephs, neps, heli, sarras. They are for sure growing bigger with the fertilizer on the pitchers.
The last pic is of an ant that obviously got trapped!
I received the VFT's from Matt about a year ago (Thanks Matt!) and they are growing fantastic in my conditions, I can't wait for summer when all the traps will be covering the entire container, then it will be a death zone for insects!
