    You lucky dog you. Well I know who's door I will be beating down after a while..... Good score bro. I will just keep chugging away at finding some of the other species. God knows I always have something to trade.

    SgtSarracenia: My stylidium is, in fact, a clump of plants. I will probably have many plants, if you guys want some. Probably late july, someting like that.

    Where did you originally get it? Did you grow it from seed?

    I would love a plug or two. Thank you for offering. That would be great. I will keep an eye out for it.

    From a europe nursery.

    I got a LIL TINY 3 leaves plant from them. That was the original plant.

    Funny how fast they grow.

    In any case- appears to be a very fine choice in Stylidium

    Interesting genus, I am very curious to see how its (proto)carnivorous plant status eventually gets resolved. Seems like there are loyalists on both sides of the fence.

    Its solved since 2009

    (...)Triggerplants are considered to be carnivorous because the glandular trichomes that cover the scape and flower can trap, kill, and digest small insects with protease enzymes produced by the plant."

    Its a real carnivorous plant, like drosera or pinguicula, but very obscur. Some rare growers have this genus.

    It will be very nice to see the carnivorous flowers in action!

    That had been what I thought but I know some people that are still convinced that it is only proto-carnivorous. Not sure what the argument there is (perhaps they feel it has not been conclusively shown that said digestion actually provides nutrients and hence benefit to the plant?). Then again, we are really talking matters of definition.
