    Oh in that case you're just screwed man.

    Bacteria live everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Where there are rotting bugs there is most certainly bacteria. Don't worry about a specific species. You worry too much.

    I think my mom has OCD or some sort of anxiety disorder. So, based on that observation, it might be genetic. Damn.

    I think it would be slightly more problamatic (although not overly apparent) if you get features from each plant (and not a combo from both parents) that go against each other like the hood of a flava and the digestive processes of purpurea. The hood of flava would block the rainwater needed for the digestive process of the purpurea. However, since these don't necessarily need to digest insects to survive it wouldn't be too big of a deal. And as mentioned, you would probably get a mixture of the two anyway to some degree.

    lol, yeah, I have bad OCD so I often find myself worring about random stuff as well...

    ...my guess is that since it's a hybrid of so many other digestive-fluid-producing sarrs...it probably produces digestive fluids as well...

    I have mild OCD. Not diagnosed by a DR but when I'm like, on the computer I'll take my mouse and go to the top of the screen, then the bottom then each side and do that over and over again, and if I'm watching TV or looking at a wall, not that I stare at walls or anything, I'll do the same thing mentally.



    I think it doesn't matter, but maybe half of the offspring would produce half as much. Unless it's TC'd then they'd all be the same.

    Purpurea hybrids can all break down and digest prey without rainwater. The production of digestive enzymes is related to dominant genes I think.

    well the production of enzymes also could be a codominant gene such as the pinkish and orange flowered Sarrs.
    I believe that first in order to find out all of that info you would first need to get a specialized and trained geneticist to look at the parent plant's and the hybrid's geonome
