    It's NOT carnivorous. Who says it is? I don't know anyone that says it is.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Only one species, Passiflora foetida, is thought to be a potentially carnivorous plant. When the plant flowers, it makes glandular bracts. Digestive enzymes have been found inside the plant's tissues, but not on the bract surfaces

    that is a qutoe from the FAQ. It is quasi carnivorous

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    I have read Barry's FAQ. However you called it carnivorous. It is potentially Quasi carnivorous, but even that is uncertain. Quasi carnivorous is not carnivorous. There is a difference and a plant must meet a certain set of deffinitions to be classed as carnivorous. That's all I mean..

    Also from Barry's FAQ
    "A plant is carnivorous if it attracts, captures, and kills animal life forms. It must also digest and absorb the nutrients from the prey to qualify as a carnivorous plant."

    Hey Guys! I am sorry to tell you this, but Passiflora foetida grows in the wild here in Puerto Rico. It is normal to see them filled with fruits in our forests and valleys. Here is called "Tagua" and it is not only beautiful, but the fruits are delicious!

    This is very interesting, I did not know it was suspected to be "quasi carnivorous". I have seen thons of glued insects on its flowers and fruits bracks, but I thought it was only bad-luck.

    Before anyone ask, I cannot take any of them, nor a cutting, they are endangered here in PR and obviously are protected by federal law.

    See you...
