Carnivorous Plants

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.
