Carnivorous Plants

Food — By Crust on May 10, 2010

I went to the 1st trout lake farmers market on Saturday before work. I wanted to talk to the guy who has the best greens, but when I got to his booth his greens weren’t what I remembered and having the best greens had seemed to go to his head. I got a beautiful bag of greens from some other farmer and was satisfied. I’m always searching for beautful greens. We also bought some carnivorous plants.

Carnivorous plants are super cool man. I’m going to raise them up for the next couple of years and then keep them in my restaurant or behind my bar to keep away flies.
We fed it an ant and it snapped shut super fast. It was so cool. I thought it would close slowly.

    Seriously this is so weird. David and I have been planning to order Venus Fly Trap seeds over the internets for the past few weeks. I swear we are always thinking about the same things at the same time! 🙂 Craaaaaazy!

    We have TWO wild species of carnivorous plants here in the Sask. Boreal Forest. The Pitcher Plant (grows in Spruce bogs and muskeg) is about 15cm tall and traps insects via downward-pionting slanted hairs and drowns them in it’s rain water “pitcher”..making a kind of fly soup which it absorbs…and then there is the delicate Sundew plant,very tiny, which uses sticky hiars tipped with a resin which curl over the victim if it lands on one of the sticky bulb-like protuberances. Neither does well in captivity..which is why they are rarely collected.

    Thanks for the tip. Went to the Trout lake market today w/ the
    family and purchased a fly trap for my son. He was so excited. Also some herb and vegetable seedlings.
