Comments about UncommonGoods Venus Fly Trap Garden Stake:

I got three of these gems and LOVE them! They make a nice grouping in the planting bed just outside my office window. Whimsical and a bit frightening at the same time, these lovelies secure the spotlight anytime anyone comes over for a visit. They make good bird feeds, too.

What a genius with a welding torch! Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us!

Fun item, red tongue shows up well against foliage. I like that the bug is attached by a magnet so that it is repositionable.
Cons - collects water which attracts mosquitoes also rusts.

      This is completely unique. I got this for my dad's greenhouse. He was totally taken with it and it was in the garden moments later. It was larger than i expected- making it an even better deal!

      Shipped lightening fast and very well packaged. This item comes in a 6 ft tall box!!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Venus Fly Trap Garden Stake:

      Bought as a back yard decoration but it's so top heavy that it falls over when it rains. It needs a deeper method of staking to stay upright.

        We have other items from Fred Conlon's collection and love the fun it adds to our backyard. Each of them "develops a unique rust patina" as stated in the descriptions of the products and we agree that this adds to their character. Each item is well crafted and will last a long time.

        My husband and I grow carnivorous plants so this was the perfect addition to the yard.

        The only not so great thing - they are so neat that I'm afraid to put them in the front yard since someone else might decide they want them!

        Comments about UncommonGoods Venus Fly Trap Garden Stake:

        This is a neat addition to my front garden, and has sparked some great conversation. Be aware, it's rusty already (been in place for less than a month) -- the open mouth collects water, too. i think i will try some rustproofing spray and/or drill some tiny holes near the bottom of the mouth so it will drain. But even with rust spots, it's neat.

            I have not seen it yet, as it was a Mother's Day gift for my MIL. I won't get to see it in person until late June. She loves it, though. She put it in her garden and thinks it's really cute and funny. I thought that the Gnome-Be-Gones carrying the gnome away were hysterical, but a little out of my price range.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Service and delivery were excellent. Great follow-up/communication and fast shipping.
