    What I find especially interesting is that the family Scrophulariaceae and the genus Pinguicula belong to the same order of plants: Lamiales. So, in a way, they really are very distant cousins!

    Does it produce any digestive enzymes? Does it absorb nutrients from trapped insects?
    If so, we have a carnivore on our hands!

    Haha

    Don't forget, it also must benefit from the nutrients it absorbs. The (simplified) criteria for carnivorous plants are that the plant:
    A) must have a method(s) of trapping prey,
    B) must have a way(s) to absorb nutrients from its prey, and
    C) the nutrients it absorbs must be beneficial to the plant.

    Don't worry, we all make mistakes! (Especially me. )
