    In order for it to be deemed a CP, it would probably have to have some identified way that it digests prey, weather it be bacterial or by enzymes.

    Well... a slurry of water and bacteria could be called digestive juice since it's juice full of things that digest for the plant.

    We all have bacteria in our intestines that help us digest. Kind of the same thing, sort of.

    that is why Roridula isnt fully carnivorous and Darlingtonia or Heliamphora are! what about the bromeliads? they are quasi carnivorous...right? but if bacteria help break down the bugs....its then as you said carnivorous.

    I guess that means I'm carnivorous...

    I'm sick and tired of all of this Iowa bashing.


    Just kidding. Iowa sucks.


    As far as the bromeliads... I dunno. You know these plants just don't LOOK like the cp's we are used to. I think that's a big part of it. Is B. liniflora carnivorous? No. But... why not? Is it the ancestor or has it evolved to not have carnivory anymore? I read somewhere about a symbiotic fungus... maybe in the Savage Garden. That works for me.

    I still have a mentality of "Why do something yourself if others will do it for you?" And thus to me, these quasi-carnivores are really just LAZY carnivores. You know, the kind who sleep in on weekends and eat too many chips playing xbox. Maybe that's why they are so greasy? It must be the late nights and palm kernal oil.

    It's kind of a neat looking plant isn't it? I wonder if someone's studying it right now...

    Wow B. liniflora isn't carnivorous? How the hell did that one get by me? I've only been obsessed with the darn things for like 2 years. x_x
