Daniel has started a carnivorous plant collection this year, and was very excited the other morning to see a flower on one of the Venus Flytraps.
He's hoping for seeds so he can grow more. We found 2 plastic bins at
the tip shop which are ideal for a mini glasshouse, although his new Pitcher
plant was a bit tall for it so Grandad made some spacers
to make a bit more headroom. The pitcher plant had a spectacular flower a few days ago.
Daniel's still looking for a decent Sundew,
as the one he and Andrew bought off trademe was a LOT smaller than the picture and looks pretty dead right now. The plant shops get their carnivorous plants in later in the year (next month) so he's saving up.
