I was taking some photos of the plant with my mobile phone and just decided to switch to video mode to see what happens. I thought it was interesting to see a video of some plants in macro and edit a little...

There were so many pitcher coming from the Heli, I've decided to make a time lapse on it. Aiming at the biggest pitcher coming up at that time, unfortunately it was't an adult pitcher yet.... At least we can witness 2 pitcher opening up at the beginning...

Drosera 'Marston Dragon' 

A winged termite lands on the dews of the Marston Dragon - while struggling to get free. Out of no where, a jumping spider (salticidae) launched out and grabbed the termite sinking it's venomous mandibles into the back. Then, it steals the food away from the dragon....

Of all common Carnivorous plants, Nepenthes is one of them then I've been resisting. Space is a problem for me always. Recently, I've taking a peek into the Nepenthe's world, and little did I know - I've been poisoned. 

 

I already have the N. Gracilis, N Ventrata, N Rebecca Soper. 

Last few days, I've traded and bought a few more :D N. Rafflesiana, N. Miranda cutting and N. Ampullaria

 

My current N. Rebecca Soper

Nice plants !

If space is an issue try some smaller nepenthes, like glabrata for example.

I was going to try a bicalarata , perhaps that will be final :D

 

The nepenthes syndrome is a dangerous one  :Laie_97:

 

Very nice pics!

Thanks :)

 

Luckily I can only grow them indoor mostly, my apartment is on level 5

5 July : Byblis Liniflora flower bloom

 

The new Byblis Liniflora which I just bought, the flower did not bloom for me on the first day. Perhaps it was a little stress after a quick repot. But on the second day it did!! It was sunday and I had the opportunity to take good photos with my DSLR set. 
 
Please enjoy!
First with just frame of almost whole plant, perhaps 10cm tall, 3-4 flowers.

Here's a closed up, Anther and Stigma present. Pollen too?

Closer view to see if we can identify where the pollens are? In the centre?
