  1. Dionaea Traps Selectively Allow Small Animals to Escape. Our prey capture experiments show that Venus flytraps (Dionaea muscipula) selectively allow small animals to escape by a system of interlocking features that complement each other very efficiently. We documented ants of the species Lasius neglectus (length 3.5 mm) running continuously through open traps of Dionaea, established since more than 20 years outdoors in our garden. To achieve statistical relevant results, we did not only count, identify and measure captured prey. Other than in former publications, we counted also the escaped
  2. My typical flytraps (Dionaea muscipula) grow in same pot together in the same location, yet some traps are deep red, larger and they lie close to the ground. Other traps on another typical vft are lime green (no red whatsoever) and grow to various sizes and vertically straight up into the air. What could explain these stark differences considering same pot, same typical Dionaea muscipula species and same location and water?
  3. Our movie "Prey Capture by Dionaea muscipula" is based on the same named CPN article (June 2017) by Emeritus Professor Stephen E. Williams and Siggi Hartmeyer. What captures Dionaea in cultivation compared with the natural habitat in North Carolina? How does it attract prey? Is UV-reflection and/or fluorescence used for attraction? Did it even develop a strategy to capture preferred larger prey animals than small ones? Well, it looks like that, but how does it work? Simply enjoy our documentary and find the answers. A HD-movie in the German language with English subtitles. Kind regards, Siggi
  4. Hi there, here are some pictures of my venus flytraps :) Enjoy Velké červené pasti E KS Fused (i found this plant 3 years ago in my seedlings) Coquillage Ring Seedlings Deformations: .... more pics coming soon
  5. Hello, Couple of pictures from my recent trip to Croatan National Forest. :)
  6. Hi I have sown some D.muscipula 'Red Giant' seeds at the end of November and they are not doing much since then to the present day. From what I have read up on venus fly traps is that they do not take long to germinate and are the most easy cp to grow from seed. The media I used is a 1:1 moss peat, grit sand mix with live sphagnum on top and the seeds were sown onto the moss. They are pushed ever so slightly into the moss but enough that they were not entirely covered and have more contact with the moist moss. The seed tray that they are in are sat into a water tray and covered by the see
  7. Having started my Carnivorous Plant journey (some ten years ago) by growing a handful of plants outdoors (due to lack of a greenhouse at the time), I've now returned to displaying a few plants outside; in a couple of newly set up bogs... A Darlingtonia haven on the left, and a mixed species bog on the right: The Darlingtonia are in a very watery/soupy mix of pure Sphagnum & rain water, and has a solar-powered airstone at the bottom to create a bit of oxygenation - in full sun the water really bubbles away! The Belfast sink bog, consists of S. × 'Maxima', S. purpur
  8. During my college years, one of my best friends, Dr. William Ratcliff aka Will, grew out some seeds that he purchased from Orton's plantation in the Carolinas (I think he bought these around 2002 or 2003). We suspect these were wild seeds collected from private property, as they were only sold in lots of 1000 or more. Will graduated in 2005 and had to move to Minnesota for his graduate studies, so he graciously gave me all of his plants. At the time, I wasn't into venus fly traps so much, so the pot was placed among the Sarracenia. They were jammed into a 4" pot and neglected for more than h
  9. Hi. Like many of you CP growers out there, i enjoy observing my plants and seeing them feed naturally on flies and other insects, non more so than my Dionaea. I have noticed that flies feeding on the Dionaea Muscipula 'nectar' seem to become intoxicated slowing them down dramatically. Now i know American pitcher plants nectar is proven to have this kind of effect but this observation i noticed before i owned any pitcher plants. Also my pitcher plants are kept in a different green house this year yet i still regularly observe this behavior in the flies around my Dionaea. I've yet to see any
  10. Here's some photos of very well grown venus fly traps at California Carnivores. There's so many different varieties, and unfortunately, I'm not up to date on my flytrap ID, but in any case, it's really neat to see all the different clones out there. Fortunately, Some of the pictures have tags that are readable. 10 years ago, there was Akai Ryu and maybe a handful of cultivars. Today, there are countless clones: Burbank's Best Pretty sure this is B52: And the Grand Finale-these are ridiculously beautiful:
  11. Hello everyone! I don't know if any of you remember me but I started posting on this and similar websites (e.g. terraforums) at the young age of 12, almost 10 years ago! I'm now 20 years old and studying Plant Science at the University of Manchester. Still having a keen interest in carnivorous plants, I have fortunately managed to convince my supervisor to allow me to study nutrient uptake in Dionaea muscipula for my final year dissertation. To put it simply, I want to find out exactly why they experience stress and die in high nutrient soils - what is it that makes them sensitive? My theo
