: I just introduced a Drosera Adelae sundew plant into my terrarium with my 2 D.auratus. Has anyone had any negative results with this kind of carnivorous plant and Dart Frogs?

I've had the same questions regarding carnivorous plants and dart frogs, too. It would be nice to have something to capture the extra uneaten flies and add a little more interest. I tried the venus fly trap, but the extremely humid and warm environment didn't suit it, which I should have known. I wonder also about the sundews. The only ones I am familiar with are from temperate zones, require lots of sun and although damp environment, not humid or tropical, but cool and airy, with a dorant cold season. What is the natural habitat of your sundew? I wonder if it wouldn't be more of a question of the plant surviving in a humid vivarium than it posing a problem for the frogs.

Be sure to keep us posted about how the plant does.
