    I think allegedhuman has the right idea. While it's really cool to think about all the monster mutant man-eating plants that could come out of radiation exposure....more realistically, any effect will be rather subtle. For example, if it affects the plant's ability to reproduce, you simply wouldn't have enough time to see the effects on something like a Nepenthes.

    If you do something like a D. capensis, you'll have time to observe the plant flowering, setting seed, and whether the seeds germinate. (and compare to a control group) A semester isn't all that long...keep it simple, and you'll be more likely to see something interesting.

    This thread if way out of my league but I THINK it sounds fascinating

    Good luck with it and keep us informed. If you decide to do anything with capensis sign me up to provide you with a few plants lol
