    I just looked at wikipedia. The article there seems to suggest that it is not clear whether the trichomes (even with the presence of protease enzymes) are there as a defense mechanism to protect the flower, or whether the plant is actually "eating" bugs. I have my own naive suspicions but am by no means an expert.

    I have to admit I was thrilled when I found this forum but if you guys don't stop sharing pics of all these killer CP's I may have to leave My wife is going to put a halt to my plant purchases if I keep up at the pace I've been acquiring them lately. In all seriousness though, very cool and interesting plant, I may have to look into these in the very near future. Thanks for sharing.

    Utri: (By the way, thanks for making me practicing my english hehe)

    I understand what you said.

    But the plant develop dew, insects stay stucked on the dew, a visible digestive enzyme pool apear like pinguicula, and 4-5 days after, you can see a little exo-skeletton remain on the plant. And the plant produce a tall flower hamp, almost 30-40cm.

    So for me, its clearly carnivorous.

    Of course the plant have dew on the flower stalk to protect the flower from walking insects, and maybe a nutrients boosts just before flowering, because the plant grow and develop faster when flowers are open.

    But right now, we are in a grey zone, more evidences will be added in the next few years.

    We are the first generation of growers who really care about this wonderfull (carnivorous?) plant
