Glad to see that GJ Bloody Nurse is making Progress! The traps last year could not close so well, if at all. But I’m glad to see that it can be functional! Here’s a link to the videos I took.

Also I’m 100% certain it divided AGAIN..

I would love to see them!

D.m “VC Toucan” looks almost identical to Bloody Nurse! Wonder how colorful toucan gets.

Hi Adrien, nurse is looking good. Curious how many leaves that you have fed have survived the feeding without turning black and dying? My BN probably throws up a new trap once a week and I always have 1 to 3 at a time that are eating. I have only had one that has digested and reopened without dying. Here’s a pic from a couple weeks ago:

What are you feeding them? The bigger the meal, the sooner the trap will die. Each trap essentially has a limit on how much nutrition it can absorb. Once that is exceeded, the trap dies.

It’s almost always gonna die when you feed it. The seal it produces isn’t good enough and it rots away, I’m sure it does get some nutrition though.
