It was quite coincidence that when you found caterpillars munching away at you're pretty leaves, I found a furry critter doing the same at my Nepenthes leaves. Was not impressed, out came the forceps, and the furry critter escaped and dropped to the ground before I could exact revenge on it by feeding it to the pitcher.

What kind of Venus fly trap is that one (second last picture, with the red mouth and green exterior)?

The first caterpillar I found I couldn't believe it, and I accidentally dropped it too! Figured it was as good as dead so didn't worry too much about it. Was horrified to later find 2 of them happily munching away....

Both of those flytraps are from Bunnings, which are sold under the name Fang though they are clearly very different from each other. I read somewhere that there is an Australian supplier that uses this as a generic name for their flytraps, the same way all their sarracenia are sold as Gobble Guts. So not really sure if it is an actual Fang VFT or if it should just be considered typical :)

Bog Monsters

My Mini Bog Garden now has inhabitants! These guys started out as drawings and prints, but I just had to bring them to life...and having so much fun doing it!

Revealed by moonlight beneath the glittering stars, Bog Monsters wait patiently to give you a fright. But they’re quite friendly really - just look at those smiles. They just want to play with your pieces amongst the hungry flytraps, glistening sundews and pitfall pitchers.

Each Bog Monster is hand sculpted in polymer clay and adorned with glitters, holographic powders, foils and glow in the dark accents. Each one is unique in name, appearance and personality - truely one of a kind artworks. Adopt a Bog Monster into your family today.
