Crafty Green Boyfriend and the Venus Fly Trap 2

My partner experimented with making a new home for our Venus Fly Trap using a plastic bottle donated by his parents but it didn't work so we're back to last year's home - made out of two plastic punnets (again donated by his parents) and a plastic mailing bag (recycled from a magazine subscription). For a closer look at the venus flytrap itself, see this post.

Good luck with the Flytrap. They are awfully delicate. :)

Doesn't that make it hard for flies to get in?

Stu - lol, yes but they don't get the flies in the winter anyway, its plant food from a bottle. You try being a fly in the Scottish winter,,,

in the spring, summer and autumn it doesn't have a house, and it can eat as many flies or wasps as it wants....

I had one years ago. I used to stare at it for hours, waiting for the fly to land. But then I also stared at Gilligan's Island and ate a batch of cookies as well.

This could turn into an epic tale. Is there a certain symbolism in the choice of plant? Haha,

Lovely job keeping the little carnivore healthy and thriving. Nice to "see" you again-- I like the new look.

Any idea what happened to One Breath Poetry? Missing all those good links...

All the best, Juliet!
