Did not know that. sorry but my family has killed a few of those things?‍♂
Happens. They have to hibernate (toss them in the fridge 3-4 months) in winter, need distilled water, kept slightly boggy, and need 10-14 hours of direct sunlight. Mine live outdoors in PA in a bog garden with a heater that keeps it at 38f all winter. They're in bloom right now.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Do they get enough bugs naturally? Or do you have to feed them?

Haven't had a single stunk but crawling around in years. Pitchers are always packed full of corpses.

I've heard that stunk but's (whatever that is) congregate near stock piles of 2.9L stuff... Maybe that's why I have no idea of what they are.

When I come to serve the doughnuts, I'm bringing a sign that says "Krispy Kreme." that's how many you're getting. ?

Oh no. Rusty, gaz, Paulos, nez, and a few others represent the 2.9 mafia.
