    It was believed to have some of the same trapping characteristics as other CPs. However, it was never scientifically confirmed.

    If a plant kill insects, it doesn't mean it can absorb the nutrients. Carnivory requires absorption.

    True, but from what I've seen, it hasn't yet been confirmed wether or not it can digest and absorb insects. So for now, lets just say that their is a possibility that it is carnivorous .
