    EDIT: I've tidied this thread up a bit, so if it looks strange, I am to blame. :-)

    You guys are hilarious. I don't check this thing for four days and there's 49 replies mainly of you beating the crap out of each other and semi-carnivores. Now, for the million dollar question does anyone know about devil's claw? Other then the fact they're no longer considered carnivorous.

    Hi,

    you can find an excellent article on DevilsClaw here :

    http://homepage.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/a...er/teufels.htm

    including a lots of pictures and cultivation information. It's in German, so you have to use a translation tool.

    Another plant very similar to Ibicella is the Petunia. This plant is also covered in sticky hairs that catch loads of bugs - but does not appear to have any digestive enzymes. Current thinking is that the Petunia traps insects for defensive puposes. However, I am of the opinion that it probably does obtain some nutreints from the trapped bugs by way of Bacterial Decomposition.

    I would, therefore, call the Petunia a sub-carnivore. That's just my opinion, though.

    Where can I find a German translator? That's cool about petunias. I'll have to read up on them too.

    google has a translator tool. Go to language tools by the search bar.

    I have already attempted to translate the Ibicella page though!

    Translated!
