    Red face

    This morning I woke up and dragged myself down to my windowsill.Something horrible met my eye in one of my VFT's traps - a fly that looked like a mini DLL (Daddy Long Legs) had it's head poking out of a trap. IT WAS STILL ALIVE It was horrible - It was struggling and trying to get out! After a long thought I grapped it's head gently and pulled.......................It came out in one piece - PHEW .I then let it out in my garden! Then I thought, 'What if the trap had started digesting it - What if it was seeping digesting fluids STILL (even if the fly was gone) I didn't know what would happen. Anyway that afternoon the trap had opened - WOW I was so pleased!

    Also I just bought a new mini plastic greenhouse - YAY!

    So what d'ya think!!!

    Hi Lil Flytrap Boy,

    Glad to see you got some more CP's. That single VFT always sounded so lonely.
