    I was looking at my pots today and noticed something black on the underside of one of my vft traps. At first I thought it was a beetle that had escaped and crawled under the leaf. On closer inspection...









    The trap is just over 1 inch. You can also see this was the beetle's second attempt at escape.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    that almost happened to my sarracneia alata black x falva red, something tried to escape, but didn't, he just made a brown spot in the pitcher, then the pitcher bent over where the brown spot was... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
