    Anybody have this? Leo Song, master CP grower, showed me this plant the other day and demonstrated the triggering mechanism. It was incredible :o
    There's this tiny little pad for an insect to touch, and when the insect touches it, a long spike strikes the insect, attaching the plants pollen to it. I want one of these, need to ask him where I can get it.
