    Oh... its just fun really. Were just trying to make sure that people actually know how to grow these amazing plants so they aren't lost into oblivion .


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Well, they'll produce non-carnivorous leaves for a brief period of time, and then they die. The non-carnivorous leaves are a severe stress response. Sarracenia, Nepenthes, Drosera, etc. will do the same, and all of them usually die as an end result.

    I agree with the other guys, time to get a new teacher. That's just as bad as my brother's 3rd grade teacher teaching her class that birds were cold blooded because they migrate. Stupid.

    Having 4 teen boys in two different public schools I believe that each school has it's own strengths and weaknesses but overall they're all going down the toilet. As usual teachers are overworked, underpaid, underappreciated, and too often undereducated themselves. If you have the means to homeschool your kids I heartily recommend you do!! I wish I could've.

    If you don't feel comfortable bringing this thread to the attention of your teacher maybe you could get your parents to do so? It's painful to see her passing on ignorance like this!

    JennB,
    While I agree that the teacher DEFINITELY shouldn't be passing on misinformation, you do have to consider the fact that the school in question apparently teaches creationism. Supplying facts doesn't seem to be a top priority in general.
