    I was wondering about these plants because of the area I live in they would be really good plants to own. What do they look like (I've only ever seen a picture of the seed in the savage garden) and where could I get one? From this site. Are they annuals or perinnials. I'm to much of a beginner for annuals. Propagating and all. Any info would be greatly apprecialted

    Hey Shauntell,

    Ibicella is a very neat plant that I, too, am on the lookout for.

    general info

    carnivory info

    PFT does unfortunately not sell Ibicella, but many people grow it and may be willing to sell, trade, or give away a plant or seeds. Carnivorous plant society seedbanks also occasionally offer Ibicella.

    And getting back on topic...
    I have planted some seeds of Ibicella, but it might take a while for them to germinate(~1 year?).

    Good Lord.

    Sarracenia purpurea doenst produce enzymes, and I think that Darlintonia californica only produces one or two...

    Does that meanthey arent carnivorous? No... The get bugs to help... Bacteria actually... I am supposing this means that triphophyllum is carnivours too (thats the onethat has assasin bugs? if not then thats the one i'm talking about)...

    all plants would be carnivorous in the way your saying it, that they can absorb nuitriends throguh the leaves, like bug juices. But they ar not truly carnivorous, truly would be that they lure, make enzumes, and consume prey
    Oh boy.

    No triphophyllum is carnivorous. It's Roridula that rely on assassin bugs.

    And S.Purpurea does produce enzymes! I think it is about 3-5 different enzymes but they are weak that is why water is there, to help with catching the insects mostly as if they fell in an empty pitcher, they wouldn't get out but they wouldn't get digested either. And Darlingtonia makes 1 VERY tiny and weak type of enzyme. so yes they are both enzyme producing carnivorous palnts like they have always been Parasuco.

    For example, a vft contains all the characteristic to be a true carnivorous plant, it makes a scent to lure, and red coloration. Traps, and digests with its own enzymes. Sarracennia purpurea is only partiall carnivorous, hence, it does not contain everything to be a TRUE cp. Some utricularia dont have a way of lue, just luck for the bug to pass (as far as we know) so they are semi-carnivorous, not completely. Even tho they are carnivorous, they do not possess everything to be a complete carnivore.
