    Hi Starman,

    Why aren't Petunia plants carnivorous? They catch plenty of insects. The same can be said for Tabacco plants, which are sticky also. The reason Ibicella isn't carnivorous is because the plant catches insects for defensive purposes. It does not digest insects(no enzyme production) and there is no clear mutualistic relationship involved(as in Roridula, Byblis liniflora etc.). It also does not absorb nutrients through its leaves(unlike B.liniflora and Roridula).

    Carnivorkid,
    Exactly where is it said that the plants are carnivorous?? The reason it can be fertilized is because it is not carnivorous. I have yet to find any carnivorous plant that can be grown in nutrient rich soil and fertilized daily...
    This is probably because I.lutea grows in an area where carnivorous habits are not necessary because the soil contains enough nutrients.

    What kind of miracle grow mix did you use? I know there are a few mixes. Like cacti mix and house plant mix.

    Did you add anything else to the houseplant mix? It looks like there is bark in it.
