    Question Self-carnivorous Heliamphora?

    I'm excited to create my very first thread on TerraForums.
    Is there a species aside from H. Tatei that can produce its own digestive enzymes without the help of symbiotic organisms to help break down their food? (I don't think I found anything on this topic in the search.)

    It's possible some of the newer species that haven't been tested for such may produce enzymes, or other species do have enzymes that were not tested for. However as of right now H. tatei and possibly the other species that used to be included in that taxon are the only ones known to produce their own enzymes.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
