nice!
it's a butterwort, a carnivorous plant with sticky leaves. great for help controlling fungus gnats.

speaking of carnivorous plants, don't forget about the necps show referenced here sept. 29-30...

do they work for fruit flies? I need a serious fruit fly trap, and soon. I was thinking about a Drosera or Pinguicula.

I have a few Pings, none of them can catch fruit flies, but Drosera work well. I have a fruit fly problem too, year round, and the thing that works best for me a is to take an almost empty bottle of beer with just a centimeter or two left in the bottom, then affix a paper funnel with a hole just large enough for them to fit through down into the bottle, and then wait. The fermentation process that the beer goes through and the the carbon dioxide in the beer that drives fruit flies wild.

if y'all have fruit flies from saving things for a compost pile/wormbin, freeze your waste to kill the eggs then put it in the pile...
