venus flytrap in a cup

Along the top edge of the photo, you can see the… uh… I don’t really know what is going on here, honestly. I’m tempted to Google it, but sometimes it’s fun not knowing what’s next.

Flytrap has been steadily sprouting and “shedding” its highly specialized leaves. That stalk has been growing for a couple weeks now. She has not caught a second fly yet. The first is still locked inside the trap at the lower left of the photo.
