I've never had a problem with these or the flytraps (er, I may have about thirsted one to death - but it came through after having a talk with it).
I just put up a pseudo trellis for the PP to hopefully climb as it was getting side happy and heavy. A few months ago I noticed green growth at the base. Now it has become apparent it's a new something. The thing that gets me isnthe fuzzy looking dude coming up too. Haha.
Anyways - not sure of the specific type of plant or what or if I am correction the new green.
Thanks a bunch in advance!
My secret??? (That I haven't killed them yet!?)
(I just give them plenty of sun and distilled water and they grow --- oh. And talk to them...)
