    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Those "Jugs" are at least 6 inches long, but the baby jugs are about 1 inch... they are about 1/4 full of a liquid enzyme that dissolves the bugs into nutrients for the plant... they can NOT be fertilized through their potting mixture and I have to use distilled water or rain water to water it...

    Be nice to it. Feed it all the worms and crickets it wants. Please, for your own safety don't contradict it or argue with it.

    The crickets and mealworms I fed the plant have all dissolved into a brown goo.....

    It will soon be feeding time again.....I wonder how long, before that freaky plant gets bored with its diet of dried bugs and starts craving something more... ummm... satisfying.....
