Cool claws,everyone. Is there a good online source for seed?
You can try the Carnivorous Plant Trading Post to find Devil Claw seeds.

Good luck to those who are have seeds on the horizon! This extreme hot weather wiped out this years crop .
In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
Aw, you guys are lucky. I decided to grow mine in a patch that was supposed to be half tomatoes and half devil's claws. Big mistake... the roots of the tomatoes overtook everything. They basically outgrew the devil's claws above and below ground. Both the Proboscidea and Ibicella were destroyed. Nothing made it this year. A full season wasted.

are they carnivorous or proto carnivorous
Neither, as far as research can find. THey have sticky leaf surfaces, but past that, there's no hard evidence they even use other insects to process nutrients, like Darlingtonia and Roridula do.
Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
