    Thanks!

    @rohrerbot

    Thanks too. The nepenthes' main prey are ants, while the Venus Flytrap usually traps flies.

    @One

    Yes, the flytrap is from S. Buloh, while the Nepenthes X Rebecca Soper (gracillima x ventricosa) is from a local nursery in Batu Pahat.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    WOW! 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 Belle

    Haha thanks. Pomegranate......too explosive haha.
