Something Smells FUNKY!

Hey everyone!

Well today I was outside watering my plants when I turned to my purple pitcher plant. I looked over to see inside the pitcher and it has a cricket in it, but dearness it smells like BS! Is it normal for it to smell like that?

LOL! I thought that people refer to it as cat litter box odor. But yeah, organic action does result in less than pleasant aromas!

RE: Something Smells FUNKY!

lol, yup, normal smell of death/decay. I had tried a nep outside one year and its pitchers were filled with wasps. Didn't matter until I brought it inside and it stunk up my apt. Dead insect smell is worse than I thought it would be.
