"But you cannot make her think"

The Venus Flytrap now has three, or possibly four buds. It's still in its protective terrarium, because the buds are still tiny, but I have managed to photograph them.

Today's title courtsey of Dorothy Parker. When challenged to make an epigram on the subject of "horticulture", she replied, "You can lead a whore to culture, but you cannot make her think!"

Evil alien Tranny killer talking plant. .....are you breeding more of them ?

We'll see how these ones grow first.

Although I do appear to have more buds breaking the surface of the soil, so I don't know how many I'll have for repotting when they are big enough.

No update on the fly traps?

I'm still alive. :)

Not much progress on the Audreys, but I'll post a newer pic in a bit.
