Appears that this sundew is eating blood. :lol: I'm curious what this is. I went to check on the capensis this morning, and it was leaking this red substance... Digestive enzymes? :?

I haven't fed these for a week. :? :? :?

I doubt it. My neighbors kid is more interested at screaming, banging on the chain link fence, making a ruckus, and spying on me while I maxsea the sundews. Not to mention their dog.

It almost looks like jelly. Maybe the dew was sun burned? Is that even a thing?

It occurs every night, after the high humidity. This place is essentially a desert, with cool nights, and hot days.

Dang! It's too bad the kid cannot get over the fence! Good riddance, and plant food.
