    Hey guys and gals

    i got introduced to a new hobby last week. The amazing world of carnivorous plants. Yes, another strange and not so common hobby for me (next to capoeira (Brazilian fighting style) and reptiles)
    Only got one plant now, but i got a feeling it this number will increase in the near future :mrgreen:
    Anyways, here are some pics

    I keep meaning to get a couple of meat eaters - figure they'll snap up any flies that happen to get in during the summer. I HATE chasing flies through the house!!!!

    Very interesting, and I like how you took a "portrait" of your new flower in the last! :) What will you feed her (is she a she? ;))

    thanks :)
    I havent got a clue if its a he or a she, ill just call it "it".
    I just feed her bugs that are at the wrong place at the wrong time. Yesterday i found a ladybug and today a big fly. But it will catch most meals by itself.

    neat, around here (Eastern U.S.A.) those are called "Jack in the pulpit" and they grow wild in swampy places.
