  •   rco911 @hkitamura hey there! I can help! Hah - where is @akita4 these days anyway? drop me a DM or email! The plants are not really for bug control - but they will catch things that just so happen to be dumb enough to fall for the plant's tricks! Heh! 2w

rco911 Yo. Stick around a while.

#Drosophyllum lusitanicum is native to the western Mediterranean region (Portugal, Spain and Morocco), and is actually one of the few carnivorous plants to grow in dry, alkaline soils. The plant emits a sweet honey like aroma, which attracts unsuspecting victims. Those beautiful gem like dew drops on the plant are quite deadly. When insects land on the leaves, they become stuck to the mucilage... The more the insects struggle, the more trapped they become, eventually dying of exhaustion and/or suffocation. Enzymes are produced which break the meal down, and then those nutrients are absorbed by the plant. The plant uses these nutrients to supplement the nutrient-poor soil in which it grows. #BotanicalBadass.

rco911 So an ant and a gnat walk into a sundew, and... well you know how this story ends. #Drosera peltata and the leftover exoskeletons of its meal. Friday carnivorous sticky-icky for ya. 4w
  •   rco911 @ashleyalaina hi! Thank you so much for the kind words! 🏽 General plant biology or carnivorous plants? (I'm quite partial to carnivores) There's quite a few out there! For carnivorous plants - the book "The Savage Garden" is a good place to start. It goes over background, biology and how to care for the plants. Books by Stewart McPhearson on carnivorous plants are also very good and a good reference. Hope this helps a little! 3w
  •   ashleyalaina Hey, thanks so much for the quick reply! I hardly know anything about carnivorous plants, so clearly I must read up! I'll order The Savage Garden ASAP. Thanks again! 3w
  •   rco911 @ashleyalaina my pleasure! It's a good book with easily "digestible" information on them! Let me know if you have any more questions on how to grow or if you need any more resources. I have some links on my blog (link in profile) -- I haven't updated my site in a few months since I moved and trying to organize the plants, but I'll get back to posting there sooner or later. :) 3w
  •   ashleyalaina Well I will be keeping in touch either way. I'm sure I'll have questions, but I promise to google first. 3w
