Some other members already commented that the fly trap looks to be in good shape, my partner couldn't resist feeding it a spider and the trap shut very quick which I take as a good sign, I had it in my head that it wouldn't function at all but if it will feast now hopefully it will be a good boost for next spring. I also had one sent to a friend of mine and hers looks absolutely fantastic, so many traps on it, so overall I'm pleased with the company, although I also ordered an aloe from them and it's very top heavy and in the tiniest pot I ever did see, it barely stands up so will need re-potting, but given they are mail order I didn't expect a huge pot I got the fly trap from gardens4you, and the D.Capensis from Nigel Hewitt Cooper, a grower here in the UK, also waiting on an Aliciae from him also, I spoke to him on the phone due to a postage mix up (my bad) and he seems like a very nice guy and was very accomodating, looking forward to my Aliciae I have also been looking on littleshopofhorrors.co.uk and mulling over another purchase, but we shall see they also sell the medium I need and have a flat rate postage so it won't be as expensive as I thought to re-pot
The Capensis doesn't look fantastic but has lots of new growth and so many cute little seedlings! Am I the only one who thinks these baby plants are cute?
Very much hoping to keep these alive, and with any luck thriving, I have it in my head to one day have a cephalotus follicularis, which I also think are cute but will see how I go with these first, I need to at least get through a good year with them
One thing I am wondering, when a sundew loses it's dew, as mine has for the most part during transit, do those leaves ever make more? or will it be the new growth with dew?
Edit: another question popped into my mind haha, what time of year would be best to re-pot my venus? the pot is too small, but in a couple of months it will be going into dormancy, so not sure if it's a good time or not.
And finally, my friends new venus, it's a bit all over the place, this photo was before she straightened out the traps and so on, but lots of nice growth on it, looks better than mine lol, but very pleased for her
