    The experiment continues...

    Today I fed 3 more traps big drops of blue food coloring followed with a fly.

    No signs of a flower scape yet. It does seem like it's growing slower than my other flytrap plants.

    Hey WildBill, I have a great idea- how about leaving your plants alone and you drink the food coloring.

    Hi wild Bill
    As to your experiment on the Flytraps, My son and I did one a wjile back with a sundew ( capensis ) to see how the bugs were absorbed into the plant. We put dye on a fly and fed it to the leaf that was mostly all green.. in time you could see the stem of the leaf was showing some red in it.. Really cool looking as the red made it's way to the bottom. Good luck with the flower though.. Maybe you will creat A new colored form of Fly Trap

    Ps: incase you do Send me one )

    Question

    The experiment continues.....

    Two more traps fed with blue coloring and flies today. No signs of a flower scape yet.

    I have 12 other non-experimented on 'typical' VFTs in different stages of flowering right now. Some have sent up secondary flower scapes too. I am hoping for lots of seed.
