Flash: How to Grow a Man-Eating Plant

By Michael A. Arnzen

Read by Sheila Unwin

The secret to growing a man-eating plant is the same as it is with any plant: you must enrich the soil.


Listen to this Pseudopod Flash.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Cute. How do you teach it to sing?

I never realized all I had to do was tell the kids not to approach the plant.  I've been doing it the hard way for years.

Heh, not bad.  Although throughout the whole thing they seemed to be avoiding the question "Why would I want to grow one of these", and never really bothered to try.

This one was a cute idea, but a little lacking in the execution department.  It would have been nice if this had more of a botanical, dry, technical feel.  As it read, it felt like it was written by someone with only passing familiarity with botany.
