heres a few of my carnivorous plants, fwiw

top left: red piranha, it has little triangle like jagged teeth, and turns completely red in summer.
bottom left: red dragon (akai ryu) - regular long teeth on the trap margins, turns completely red
top right: my trough of various fly trap species.
bottom right: my pride and joy.. "darlingtonia californica" - aka the cobra plant. i have the oregon mountain variety, they are just over a year old and should reach about knee high in a few yrs time

Wow those look amazing! I did keep the ID labels with each plant(there was two label for each). Thanks for the planting tips as well, the wife was up late again planting the seeds you sent...I'll let you know when I see sprouts.

go to flytrapcare.com and get yourself some.

you get good value in a mystery box, but the store chooses what plants you get.

they sell peat/sand mix's too, incase you cant get good peat moss locally

I joined the site yesterday, you post over there much more frequently than here. It's very exciting to start something new, not that I know everything about keeping fish but these plants are something entirely different.

oh heck no.

the only wild fly trap's left are in a 100km radius of wilmington, north carolina.

i didnt send fly trap seeds from oz, i sent seed from pinguicula sethos (mexican butterwort) and also Drosera Capensis (sticky sundews from africa)

its legal to send or receive almost any type of seed, but you cant export/import live plants or live plant tissue without C.I.T.E.S permit

ping sethos. its leaves feel like melted butter, small bugs get stuck and the plant basically drools on them.


drosera capensis, the sundew. this plant gave the idea for "fly paper"
the bug lands and gets stuck by the dew drops on the end of each of the hairs.
it then stimulates the red hairs when struggling, and the leaf actually curls, twists, and wraps its way around a bug over a short period (maybe an hour?)

It's funny you say that since my wife is from North Carolina and that's the first thing she said "I've seen lots of them in my back yard" after I stated that I've never seen one before.
