    what makes it carnivorous , the seeds , the plant , the flower or what . I think its the seed but I'm not sure because I saw on some tv channel that there was an oval seed that has digestive fluids and a trigger hair on it and when the pray touches the trigger hairs on the seeds it release digestive fluids that engulf the prey , then the seed sprouts after a couple of feedings .

    goldtrap2690,

    My impresion is the whole plant, leaves, stems, and flower sepals have little glandular hairs similar to butterworts (Savage Garden, p290).

    The seeds are just seeds though the come in a wicked looking pod. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    I'm wondering, since roridula and several other "quasi carnivores" don't actually secrete any enzymes but just capture the insects. If I have a previously unmentioned quasi carnivore.

    I have a pair of Uncarina peltata seedlings that seem remarkably adept at catching gnats. There's not a lot of data on this species around but its a member of the sesame seed family I believe. I have a pair of another Uncarina species but I just got them bare-root and they haven't put out enough leaves to see if they can trap bugs too. The U. peltata leaves feel very much like a butterwort's leaves but hairer. They've got lots of oily hairs all over the plants though.

    Hi:

    I have got a ibicella that had just germinated from seeds, I call tell you seed germination is quite difficult. And it seems to me that it is the soil temperature and the atmospheric temperature that seems to trigger the germination. It is best to sow them in one-two weeks before the spring (lots of lights and keep soil moist) and germination should start in about 2-3 weeks to a month.

    Oh, and the whole plants have sticky glands all over.

    Regard
