    Very interesting thread indeed. I am sure that early man must have been quite curious as to what purpose Pinguicula and Drosera served as they are noticeably different looking plants than most others.

    There's also a rumor going around that some N. lowii have been known to entirely separate from their roots - vining off into the canopy living off of nothing but their older pitchers and newer growth.
    LOOKING FOR: N. (argentii x bicalcarata) x {[(lingulata x edwardsiana) x (naga x hamata)] x [(klossii x undulatifolia) x (aristolochioides x rajah)]} Growlist: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=124586

    I think some people drink the 'nectar'.

    And dont forget that before the 19th century, perhaps even before the 20th century, 99.999% of people on the Earth thought *nothing* of CP's..
    because they were not aware they even existed!
    Only two very small groups of people would have been aware of them at all:
    1. The locals who happened to live among the plants.
    2. a very small and select group of scientists who had access to books and scientific journals.

    Today we take it for granted that we can find out about virtually anything, anywhere..
    That was not the case in the recent past..
