Thread: The carnivorous orchid

  1. #1
    Guest
    While looking in the HGTV website, I found an interesting article that told a little about a carnivorous orchid with sticky leaves to catch insects. How many of you have heard of it? Can you gather some info on it?

    Is this it? A little pricey I would say.

    And I don't think it's talking about that Paphiopedilum.

    Cool

    Doesn't sound like this orchid would be doing much else with sticky leave other than catching insects. Sounds exciting.

    BTW: Is anyone planning on going back and get some more?

    sorry they are completely wrong about that orchid being carnivorous...

    Someone said something and it just spread and the story grew and grew...

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
