like insects, only they cannot be digested.
So after a few moments the frog will
burst free. If Cloud is on the flower
during this time, he will be catapulted
to areas he couldn't reach on a normal

only way to make it shut it's mouth.

Items: Spring Gun Clip, Supershot ST
To progress to the next area, pick up the three
insects near the start and move them towards the
pitcher flowers that are blocking your way. Place
the first one in from the ledge, and the next insect
in the next flower from the one you are currently
on. To get the item from the Mutant Flytrap aproach
it from the right and barely step on it. You should
be able to obtain it without taking any damage.
Items: "Slash-All" Materia, Minvera Band
Pick up the insect and jump to the high ledge via
the Stamen. Place the insect to the left of the
Pitcher Flower so it jumps into it. Once across
pick up the frog that's nearby and put it in the
left pitcher flower. Now stand on the Pitcher Flower
until Cloud is catapulted to the hig ledge to the
left, where he can pick up a large beehive. Now
take the beehive and set it just to the left of
the Mutant Flytrap. This cause it to shut allowing
you to obtain the "Slash-All" Materia.
Now pick the frog back up and put it in the right
pitcher flower. Stand on it until Cloud is catapulted
to the right.
Items: "Typoon" Materia
Pick up the two insects and place them in the Pitcher
Flowers so Cloud can reach the Stamen. This takes
him deep to the forest canopy. Follow the limbs
up to the right to find the "Typoon" Materia.
Now go back all the way to the left, back to Area
two to find the Minverva Band. To return to Area
three you must use the same tactics involving the
frog you did before. Make your way to the treetops
and go halfway to the right Walk behind the broken
tree limb before the three Stamen, and you'll find
a path leading to Area 3. Place an insect in the
Pitcher Flower to reach the Beehive. Put the Beehive
in the Mutant Flytrap, and then use the second insect
to reach the left area again. Grab an insect, and
place it in front of the Hollow Tree to lure out
a frog. Leave the frog and go grab the other insect.
Put the insect in the Pitcher Flower, then grab
the frog and go to the right. Place the frog in
the Pitcher Flower and stand on it until he is catapulted
to the right.
