    If you were an insect

    Hey, if you were an insect or something similarly small what kind of plant would you want to get eaten by. Think about the slow death by sundew, or the shock of getting snapped up by a flytrap. So, how will you go?

    None, because I wouldn;t want to die. xD

    Anyway, they're all slow deaths. But...I would say a Utric.

    id say a nep. its thought they have enzymes and such to put the prey out so they dont damage the pitchers. AKA nice and easy death!

    Oh my, what a question! Lets see, I'd avoid VFT's for the panic factor, same with just about any sarr, so yeah, Nep sounds like the best route to go on.

    None! Why would I want to be eaten! XD

    Probably a nep, sar, heli, ceph, or darlingtonia. I just don't want to have anything with dews or vfts.

    Nep. Not too long after falling in I'd drown.

    Sarr would be a slow death as usually they land on other bugs and don't drown.

    VFT would be fairly slow as you wait for it to seal off and possibly crush you.

    Sundew would be slow also.

    Either a Darlingtonia or a nice Nepenthes; I'd like one nice, peaceful look at the world in all its glory, and nature in its beauty, as the end approaches.
