    Cephalotus and Capallary Mats

    Lets get right to the point, I'm thinking of setting up a vivarium and using a capillary mat as the only source of watering. The goal here would be a low maintance set-up that I would not need to bother with too much as I already have my "look at me NOW or I'm going to die" set-ups :-D...

    what do I do with headless Sarr flower stalks?

    I had 3 BEAUTIFUL Saracenia flower stalks this year, one a red form Psittacina and 2 Flava "cutthroats". It isn't a big amount of flowers, but they're my first, so I was excited.
