Butterwort


I have several of these buttworts. This is a common one P.Primuliflora.

Longish slender leaves with slickly curling lips on the side. A pretty light green they have slightly sticky surfaces and are able to capture small insects. Not as flashy as a Venus Fly Trap, but it does its job.

I now have several really small Pings that are growing. They are finally becoming noticeable.



It is difficult to identify this Ping. It has hairs on the edges of its oval shaped leaves.

yeah, that's actually a dying Drosera adelae. I hope it's turned around since then...
