*Hucule's' produces much thicker leaves than standard form*

Lime green leaves strappy leaves with red "tentacles" with sticky mucilage (enzamtic goo). Grows upright creating a palmtree-shaped plant. Leaves wil curl over insects that that are attracted to the plant.  Prey ranges from Gnats to Craneflies, sometimes even smaller moths. Flower inflorescense towers about 6" above the leaves with sequentially-blooming, bright pink flowers lasting several months. 

It is more important for plants to get enough light than it is to feed them. Insect food is mainly fertilizer to them as opposed to chlorophyll that is their actual food source.

*Can help control flying insect issue but it is not a solution*
