Gross but interesting

Sort of odd putting a "PS" at the top of the post, but... the smelly plant went back outside this morning, and just a minute ago I went outside to take a look at it and noticed this white stuff at the center. I got the magnifying glass. The white stuff is eggs and some of them have hatched into maggots. Eeeeuuuwww. Now I am wondering does the plant somehow eat the maggots that hatch from the eggs the flies have laid?

Me neither. I did find out that the plant doesn't "eat" the maggots, they starve. I am cutting the blossom off.

Sounds good to me. Cut it off and take it far, far away!!! Take it to Wal-Mart if you have to!!!
