Shut Your Trap

Leave a comment

Venus 16-07-14     Aphro 16-07-14

I hadn’t noticed the other day that another of Aphro’s back traps had also snaffled a daddy long legs. These two back traps have now fully opened revealing the gruesome remains of the eaten insects. A few of his other traps have now shut but there is little indication of what may be trapped inside.

Venus’s single remaining trap has also shut, again with no indication of what may be inside. I have previously stated that I have read that traps may only shut four times (and then reopen) before they die off. I am beginning to wonder if Venus has had her chips, if this trap dies then there will not be a lot of plant left as the flower too seems to be dying off.
