Meet the three Fates, my new carnivorous plants! The two on the outside are Venus fly traps and the center one is a sundew. I've had the fly traps since January -- they came in little self-sustaining bottles to start with and I just planted them all in special potting mix. The sundew came with the potting mix.
The little bottled terrariums are neat, but eventually the plants outgrow them and need to be potted.
Carnivorous plants require extremely specific environments and tons of care, so these little ones probably won't make it very long. Even the supplier the plants came from (and from which I bought the potting kit) seems really dubious that they'll live outside the bottles. But the fly traps were gifts from someone I love, and I'm going to try to keep them alive! Смотреть полностью
