good old simpsons...
i fed my trap a baby fly...(one of the real small ones)...it closed and it was fine for about 5 days....then it started to open up again with the fly still in it (its wrapped with white stuff now tho)....and i was wondering if the trap is just dyeing?
i was also wondering, if a plant catches a fly and eats it, when it reopens, is there anything left from the fly inside?
It's been one of dem days
Dav, Usually there is only the exoskeleton left. The soft tissues are disolved by the flytraps enzymes and absorbed, leaving only the hard parts behind. The white stuff on the baby fly may have been fungus (mold). If a trap does'nt close tight and form a seal completely around the insect, fungus and bacteria can get in. Often this will kill the trap, but not the whole leaf. If the trap hasn't started to turn brown/black then it's fine.
How come chicken fingers are bigger than buffalo wings?
