    That is the densest clump of Dionaea I have ever witnessed.

    "I've never seen anything like that before."

    Anyhow, it seems at least SOMEONE has luck with growing these. I'm afraid my plant's traps are dying and it isn't making any good replacements. Probably I'll take a leaf pulling or something.

    I do not purposefully feed any plant in my g/h. Fertilizing or otherwise. Since they are in greenhouses bugs are limited but every now and then I'll find some bugs that have been eaten...

    I'm pretty sure he was talking about how the plants form nice circles and not just tangled messes of traps. That's one of the things that I love about that picture I posted... They look like a VFT petiolaris complex plant.

    Well, I already have one, and I think the plant agrees with you.
