By All Hallow’s Eve — the blossoms will be a ghastly golden brown, and perfect for the graveyard!
The Cobra Lillies come in these handy colored tins. At this stage, I’m not sure if I will leave the plants in these tins, go to something more appropriately botanical, or incorporate them into a bigger display.
After I started thinking about the display possibilities of the Cobra Lillies, I was thrilled to come across these hungry Venus Fly Traps at my local grocery store (QFC, local splendid readers).
Like Cobra Lillies, Venus Fly Traps naturally grow in a humid swamp (though humidity is more important to the Venus Fly Traps than the Cobra Lillies). To keep their surrounding humidity high — I placed them in a nest of moss inside a vase that is just taller than the plants.
Both plants (fly traps and Cobra Lillies) should be “swamped” daily, preferably with distilled water.
