Okay, this one has been bugging me so much I had to crawl out of bed at 3 AM with strep throat to get it off my chest. Heres the question: Do hybrids containing S. purpurea not produce digestive enzymes since S. purpurea does not? For instance...
S. purpurea x flava, since S. purpurea is involved (and, in this case, the mother parent) does the plant not produce digestive enzymes? I know it doesn't really matter, but I am just curious. And for some reasons, plants that seem to 'do it on their own' are more favourable to me, since I see it is as the edwardsi or whatever they are called larvae don't live near me. My concern on this is that my S. courtii var. heterophylla has S. purpurea ssp. purpurea x S. psittacina in it, yet, can it digest it's own prey since S. psittacina can?
