    For some garden pests, this would be close to murder. If they are insects***it would be insecticide! Don't worry Tamlin, I know some good agricultural lawyers, I'll get you off.

    I thought they were proven carnivorous in the 30s.

    they were thought to be carnivorous until barry rice rpved that they were'nt . still , they are interesting plants though , they have the qualities of being considered carnivorous but its not very likely , they just kill things and waste the lives of there prey and they are related to pinguicula , utricularia , genlisea in the lentibulariaceae genus .

    I grow I. lutea in my backyard! Well actually they just grow there by themselves. I just found them whenever we moved here. Didn't know what they were until I did some research. They grow where I live. In kindergarten we would always get the seed pods and run around and throw them at the girls because they would get scared!

    must be cool to have cps growing in the wilderness near you
    isnt it annoying when your favorite plant is not in your hands? (your signature)
