    Better late than never...

    Welcome to the forums! Your carnivorous plant saga sure seems exciting! (My old eighth grade English teacher would love how you wrote it. :bigthumpup:)

    Free D. spatulata!

    I believe 'whom' is used as the object of a prepositional phrase in place of 'who'. But maybe that's just me.

    Raccoon Deterrent

    Quick question: Won't they just come back if I stop using it?

    Raccoon Deterrent

    The carnage never ends!!!!! :mad: I do have one thing to thank the raccoons for, and that's for dividing one of my flytraps for me, which I probably wouldn't have had the guts to do myself. ...But even though I just potted it today, THEY RIPPED IT OUT AGAIN! Anyways, I need to change...

    My Saccarenia, is this a good sign?

    True. My Sarracenia is on the west side of my house and gets zapped by full-force afternoon sun, and all it does is turn red.

    Saw my Scorpioides snag a gnat out of midair

    First: Great plant! :bigthumpup: And second: This reminds me of a hilarious moment last year when my 'Cupped Trap' flytrap closed on a fly and the thing's whole head was sticking out with cartoony red eyes (no pun intended) bugging out. I have a picture somewhere... Aha, here it is! It's in a...

    Well, this is awkward......

    It's referred to as false vivipary if it's a part of a flower stalk. Barry Rice goes into a good amount of detail on his FAQ, but what it boils down to is that since flowers are just modified leaves, some hormonal imbalance could cause the flowers to revert back to leaves. It's perfectly normal...

    Curious Discovery

    I just must say that the Winter from Hell, while oxymoronic, is very accurate. But anyhow, where were these pots located? Location can be a big deciding factor in plant survival.

    NEW+ Cephalotus, D. Spatulata, D. Red Dragon, Cobra lily

    That sounds much more accurate. ;)

    NEW+ Cephalotus, D. Spatulata, D. Red Dragon, Cobra lily

    That flytrap does not look like a D. 'Red Dragon'. It looks like a hybrid of that and D. 'Sawtooth'. Either way, great plants!

    Raccoon Deterrent

    Interestingly enough, the raccoons have stopped visiting...at least for now. I didn't mention that another strategy of mine is to use my good ol' raccoon trap and just relocate them when I catch them. As far as I know, raccoons do not have the same amazing tracking senses that, say, cats do.

    Your favorite element is lithium, oxygen, or silicon? Those are my three guesses.

    Ouch. That's some serious damage there. And yes, grasshoppers eat leaves. Several have escaped my plants by just eating their ways out (which I do NOT appreciate).

    Plastic cups over VFTS in the store? kill em or save em?

    I never really cared about the domes, but then again, I never needed them. My flytraps always have done well regardless of being in a terrarium or not.

    Things my plants ate..

    Same thing always happens when my flytraps catch a spider. :-D
