Terrifying and beautiful!
Such a big trap! It's frightening...
@lotusleafThanks!@StephanieHahaha big mouths.
Awesome meat-eating monsters!
I'd love to grow these guys outside where the mosquitos hang out:)
You got these from your recent trip to Sg Buloh? Anymore hidden treasures?
@FloridagirlThanks!@rohrerbotThanks too. The nepenthes' main prey are ants, while the Venus Flytrap usually traps flies.@OneYes, the flytrap is from S. Buloh, while the Nepenthes X Rebecca Soper (gracillima x ventricosa) is from a local nursery in Batu Pahat.
I used to work at a wholesale nursery where I was in charge of growing 250,000 Venus Fly Traps, so I am VERY familiar with them. Even having grown that many, I still like playing with them! I see a Sundew in the first photo too.
Aaron, this is great! You have many natural booby traps in your garden. They are lovely! Care to grow a pomegranate plant? Then you will have grenades as your garden ammo, haha.
@Grower JimWOW! That's a whole lot of flytraps. They are very easy to grow too. The only tricky part here is dormancy since there's no winter here. Yah, there are sundews near the flytrap.@Autumn BelleHaha thanks. Pomegranate......too explosive haha.
I'm so envious, Aaron! I wish I had access to these so-interesting plants here.What medium do you use to pot them?
Thanks!! I use pure sphagnum moss for the medium.
you really do have a carnivorous collection..watch out mosquitos :)
Hahaha I love carnivorous plants.
