Fertilizer is a good way to make your basic plants a little more unique with great arch’s.

Woah. If you could manage to make a breed like that, you could probably sell it and name it that

On a real note, the fertilizer has been pretty safe for me, only a few plants have experienced some burn but that’s because they were small fresh repots.

Both Flytraps and Cephs are growing very well and healthy!

I’m noticing that the beginning of each lobe on a lot of my traps are extending, while the end of the traps finish growing causing the trigger clusters to shift off center. On some traps the midrib doesn’t stretch with it, causing it to bend and curve thus causing heavy arches as you see on other photos. I theorize Fertilization of Dionaea extends the trap, which is cool cause we are getting longer/larger traps. The beginning of the traps seem proportionately longer than the ends of them.

(The photos I can provide aren’t the best quality but it sorta helps visualize. Also the trap that it is most prominent on has arch’s too defined that a picture cannot show the full stretch of the trap since its curves too much.)

Pearl river exotics and I are working together on the project, they know people who can get it done.

After an extended period of time I’ve found that the fertilizer has had great effects on my neps. Significant leaf jumps, especially on my Truncata x (Lowii x Truncata). That plant should not be as fast as it is let me tell you, especially with those parents.
