    Not as obvious in your photos though

    Now why do they call them "triggerplants?"

    agreed. Probably the lack of good lighting (causing a lack of dewy-ness). I dunno..

    Not trying to hijack, but S. debile seems to have it's carnivorous glands on the the flower and the pedicel.



    You can see the pedicel is covered in glands, so is the "trigger" and the sepals.

    It seems mass' flower stalk is showing false vivipary.

    One more question

    Does the trigger trigger any action? Such as a burst of pollen?

    The "trigger" is the male and female reproductive structures (stamens and stigma, style, ovaries) fused into a floral column if I'm not mistaking. When the pollinator lands on the flower this triggers the structure to spread pollen all over its dorsal side. The trigger is pressure sensitive. Nifty

    Pretty sure their still considered protocarnivorous or carnivorous due to protease enzymes used.
