    Of the plants in this room's title, what plants do y'all (attemp at Texas drawl) grow? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Possibilities:
    Bromeliads - Brocchinia reducta, Catopsis berteroniana
    Ibicella lutea (a.k.a. Devil's claw, unicorn plant)
    Roridula - ssp. gorgonias and dentata
    Triphyophyllum peltatum ()

    There are other possible/kind of/unpopular/misfit carnivores, too. Dipsacus fullonum, Capsella bursa-pastoris, Paepalanthus, and Proboscidea come to mind.

    Of the above, the only plant I grow is Brocchinia reducta, which is...kind of interesting. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    How about everyone else?

    I would love to get my hands on a carnivore in cognito... They are scarce to me... Except for shepperd's purse, they are weeds here... They are the ones with the seeds that supposedly eat mosquito larvae...

    I grow Roridula dentata and Roridula gorgonias (both covered no with thousands (!) of insects) inculding Pameridea marlothii (the "assassin bugs")
    I also grow a Catopsis (which everyone labels as berteroniana, but someone told me, that the "true" berteroniana has not entered cultivation yet, so I don't know for sure)

    Does anybody grow Ibicella lutea? I've been looking for some seeds of this plant, but seems impossible to find.
