    Don't be too quick to discount the survivability of Boston insects. Many years ago, when taking out the trash, I discovered some maggots in the bottom of the trash can. In a fit of rage I dumped...

    Gribbley larvae in my water tray

    I just repotted my S. leucophylla and found these critters whipping around in the water tray. What the hell are they? More importantly, what can I feed them to?

    I estimate the biggest (which is...

    I think my flytrap is moldy

    I recently noticed that there was a lot of white fuzzy stuff around one of my VFTs. It seemed like too much to be the work of fungus gnats. I took some pictures before scraping it off. I know I...

    Since I live in an apartment, I don't really have the option to keep my plants outside. Despite what people say about CPs grown indoors, mine don't really catch a lot of food on their own because...

    I've read that not pitchering is often a symptom of not enough light. Unless you're sure its getting enough, I would either move it to someplace where it gets more, or add a light with a timer.

    I also agree with the others. Drosera and VFTs especially can throw fits when stressed. When I moved last spring more than half of my VFTs tried to kill themselves in protest. Sundew dew production...

    Wow, again with the thread necromancy.

    I'm curious about pill/sow bugs. (Are both considered woodlice, or just the non-rolling variety?)

    My experience has been that VFT traps blacken when fed...

    My experience is that when happy and healthy, flytraps will divide on their own, kinda like many-mouthed, vegetable amoebas. As a result, a couple years back I found myself with more flytraps than I...

    That's adorable.

    I'll be getting some pygmies myself just as soon as I develop an attractive way of mounting a magnifying lense on the pot, like in movies like Brazil & City of Lost Children.

    I'm not really sure. It includes vermiculite. I'd only purchased the plant a couple weeks before this started. I assume there's something about my apartment it doesn't like.
