    speaking of which, I've noticed that spiders will come on their own to lick? the bit of dew at the very edges of the trap. A few are smart about it and never get caught, but 80% usually get trapped the first time or soon after.

    Hi all

    Spiders seem to be the food of fancy for the VFT's in our bog and in the mini greenhouse. The cool thing is is that the spides after they are cought, thier legs are sticking out of the closed trap and are still trying to escape but to avail Id sa out of the 15 open traps about 70% of them catch spiders.

    This spider talk is interesting. Recently, I noticed one of my traps was closed, and I had not fed it. I wanted to wait until it opened to see what it caught, but it started to rot. I cut it off, and opened it, and there was a spider on the inside. I guess they really like the nectar stuff. How effectively do vfts catch bugs and spiders when a husk is left in the trap?

    Eaten insect may attract some fungi, so I think that it should be removed as soon as possible.

    I dont tottally agree with that, borg. On my pinguicula grandiflora, digested insects were on its leaves for over 2 MONTHS before they started to get fungi.

    But it DID get it, didn't it? I wouldn't risk waiting until the fungi come. It may be after months or also tomorrow. And I had awful troubles with fungi, so I'm pretty careful. And traps look better when they're white-glove clean huh? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]
