    CP encyclopedia?

    I was wondering if there is such a thing as a free online carnivorous plant encyclopedia, because that, would be cool.

    Not to my knowledge, but that would be nice.

    while it seems like it would be simple enough, and it might be, there are over 600 species of cps, not to mention a gazillion hybrids. that would be a huge undertaking, and would take a long time. not trying to say you can't, but to do it correctly, it would take a lot of time and effort. that is probaly why there isn't one.

    And not to mention that the taxonomy of many plants are still hotly debated. The best thing I've found for a CP encyclopedia is the carnivorous plant photofinder.

    And don't forget Wikipedia, it not perfect or complete by any means but it does have info on a lot of species especially Nepenthes.

    The closest you're going to find are:

    http://www.sarracenia.com/faq/faq5000.html
    http://www.plantarara.com/
    http://www.omnisterra.com/bot/cp_home.cgi

    There are plenty of sites devoted to one genus like http://pinguicula.org/. Google is your friend.
