After being away for a while (about a year I believe) I was amazed to find my account still open.
I decided to see if I could remember how to get my photo's here etc. so took a few shots of some of my Carnivorous plants and look, they got here. :)
So, from the top.. The first two are of Nepenthes miranda. This is a tropical pitcher plant hybrid that grows like a vine. Also known as 'Monkey cups'.
The third one down is pretty obvious. It's one of my most voracious Venus fly traps (Dionaea muscipula).
If you see the leaf (what's left of it) on the left (about 9 O'clock) that has turned all black & nasty and is rotting away.. That trap recently ate a small lizard. I know, I didn't believe it at first either, but it's true. I have photographic evidence. ;)
The fourth is a Sarracenia wrigleyana hybrid. This is another pitcher plant, but this grows straight up from the ground, not on a vine.
Not one of the best fly-catchers in the world, but pretty good for ants & other crawling bugs.
The fifth is a Sarracenia flava. Pitcher plant.
The last one is a Sarracenia leucophylla. Another pitcher plant.
There are just so many! I have other Nepenthes and a few Sundew (Drosera) too, but as I haven't been around and subsequently not renewed my subscription I'm restricted on batch sizes. I may post some another time if they interest anyone.
