I'm sorry that i keep on posting stuff about my plants that are not bonsai, but i felt like sharing then with the community.

These 3 plants are: 2 dionaea(1 adult and 1 young) and 1 drosera capensis.
Both the young dionaea and the drosera struggled for a few weeks when they got here. the drosera even lost all its leaves but now has 4 and has been "catching" some stuff. The young dionaea only had 3 traps and was looking really bad, but now it has fullly grown 2 new ones and has 2 more growing.

hope you enjoy! :)

Malaqias those photos are awesome! I have only ever seen those plants on t.v! Those are awesome, unfortunately you cant bonsai those haha but go out there and get a whole lot of stock trees, start cuttings if you dont have the cash! Each time one gets new trees it gives you that much more inspiration and joy

Hey guys! thanks for the input.
Jon, i agree with you, i should get a couple trees to work on, and i will, soon. Now i added something to my carnivorous collection, and next i'll get back to my bonsai collection. i just wanted these plants for a long time, the opportunity was there, so i took it.
The good news is i also ordered some mimosas seeds, wich have already sprouted. and someday in the future i'll be working on those. :)

manofthetrees, i heard sprouting carnivorous plants is not an easy thing to do, so don't blame yourself. When i have more space i'll also get some pitchers, but for now, the little space i have left is reserved for bonsais.
