Reason: MERGED POSTS
lol, i saw the earring one, i wonder if you left it on for a day if it would begin digesting your ear lol
Well they say the mucus secreted is potent enough yo melt even human flesh.. Ive gotton it on my hands but never left it on long enough to test the theory..so i can only speculate that it may burn or something..
B. Rice tested the hypothesis that Venus Flytraps could digest human flesh by feeding two or three traps some of his own, harvested from infected tissue on his finger. While the traps died afterwards (likely from the animal-protein-rich flesh, rather than it's infected nature), the meat they had been working on was indeed dissolved, and looked rather like wads of snot when he cut them out of the blackening traps.

Oh! How about that one where you can't squish the flies before you feed them to the traps. That was a good one...or was it something about feeding 3 times in a week, can't remember.
My theory and experience in feeding my Venus fly traps squished flies is my own experience in the matter and never said it was FACT, and for y'all to dwell on my experience in the matter and my advice for feeding a weakened plant is beyond childish behaviour. I don't block y'all from my posts cause i like to read the information you give and contribute to others through your own personal experiences in growing and cultivating plants... But if your gonna be rude and put down others id rather you not comment or participate in my posts. I provided more then enough information and photos to support my experience in the matter and if that isn't good enough for y'all then nothing i say will ever be.
But to call me out on my experience and something that's been proven in my experiments on a post where a guy influences people to think VFTs will cut ppl with their cilla is absolutely ridiculous and NOT the same in the least! I didn't color my traps that contained squished flies with a black marker to try to make u beleive it would be true. And again a trap can only really be fed 4 times befor it dies off maybe more depending on the plants health and how long the traps been established i guess. I NEVER said the plant would die and that's my fault for assuming you understood what i meant but I've explained it far more then anyone else should have and yet again you go back to what i wasn't even talking about.
Thanks for that info zath I've read parts of that..Barry rice is on another forum im on and i enjoy reading his experiments on plants kinda funny it would cause the traps to turn black, I've heard of ppl feeding their traps skin and blood..i think I'll stick to bugs for mine.. Though i am having a mold problem if they eat freezedried blood worms..which is strange cause doesn't happen every time... I gatta do some testing on that situation.
But anyways...this guy who made this video who sounds like 'salad fingers' has other videos aswell trying to show how deadly they are.. Its almost as bad as the 'Charlie' videos on YouTube entertaining YES but not truth. Plus, i can't stand how many times i have to tell kids or pple i met who see my VFTs that the 'Charlie' videos are done with decapitated traps not a REAL vft plant...ahrg!
Ummmm...if it isn't a FACT, then its of no value to broadcast it as if it were a fact. That's all there is to it.
I was not necessarily commenting on your expression of experience. I did that initially in the original thread and was promptly ignored, along with a number of other people attempting to explain to you reasons for your experience and why the expression of your results may not have been true. Nothing was proven in your experiments, and that still stands.
I was merely commenting on the hypocrisy in this situation though. However, you're stubborn refusal to see reason when explained to you by others with more experience and understanding, constant contradictions, and blatant hypocrisy make it very difficult to not question your posts.

Again Axel i took your information and proved that in my case that that wasn't the reason on WHY only the traps with squished flies turned black. I have done other tests on my experience in the matter and have only come back with the results i have shared from my experience... Im also attempting it again with more plants in the same condition of the same size and age and am noting the same results i had the other time i did the experiment. Commenting on my thread about something that isn't at all close to what i was doing in my expiriment I've done on my plants isn't necessary.
All information and study/experimental and advice is based on another persons experience in the matter and is shared by those who it works for, yet whatever i share is 'misinformation' to others because certain people don't think my experience in anything matters. my VFTs are healthy and happy currently and awaiting dormancy except for the ones ill currently testing yet again for my own personal study, but anything i choose to share should have the same consideration as anyone else's experience/experiments in the matter of Whatever the situation its about, not blatantly put down and pulled apart.
I always share my thoughts, advice, experiences and information where i have also went through similar or the same situation.. And i Almost always mention that my experience os my own and something's don't work for others and are different according to their location, temps, growth conditions and overall health of their plant/s and medium used... And that what works for me may not work for others but is shared because you never know whati works until u try it for yourself. But i don't go around misinforming people or say anything that could possible harm or hurt their plant in any way, shape or form.
But I should not have to keep defending my own experiences in caring for my own plants or the advice i give to others from my own expiriences.
I didnt post this thread to be called a hypocrite i posted this to share to novice growers to not beleive everything they read or see and to take it with a grain of salt. Reguardless how wrong the information above is. The last thing we need is kids or others gettinh started in collecting and cultivating CPs is to think something like this could even be true let alone have them attempting to spread this around to others who may think its true. If he honestly got a cut on his tounge from his VFTs cilla thats one thing but to falsify such a thing and try to pull it off as it really happened is completely different then sharing information and their own expiriences in a situation.
Im done with people who arent willing to give, share and receive info/advice to ppl without being civil to someone reguardless of what they personally think of the person/s writing the thread or responding to a thread for any reason. If we all cant have a fun, safe and civil place to share our own personal expiriences, expiriments, results, advice, thoughts and information about our plants without getting put down or picked apart then whats the point in having a community like this to come to?
