Anyone here grow insectivorous plants? Dionaea, Nepenthes, Sarracenia, Cephalotus, Darlingtonia, Drosera, Genlisea, Aldrovanda, Heliamphora, etc? I grow a few Dionaea, Nepenthes, and Sarracenia.
I used to grow some Venus Fly Traps, but that was about it. They really dont work that well for catching bugs in a house, it takes 2-3 days for them to kill 1 fly fully.
Don't they stink?
Jack in the Pulpits are good... If you live in the Amazon.
Drosera species with long leaves are good at catching gnats and fruit flies; larger species are better at catching larger insects. I have also seen my Sarracenia plants attract and trap moths, flies, and wasps.
It might depend on the species. I'm told Nepenthes and some Sarracenia flowers stink.
Mine caught regular houseflys, but they take forever to Digest their Prey, though they are cool plants.
