    Yup, The indigenous people in N. veitchii territories use their pitchers to cook rice. It's pretty cool! The hard nature of veitchii pitchers makes it possible. Same thing with N. ampullaria. Here's a link.

    Some people S. purpurea has medicinal properties to help with pain. That would be the conine killing nerves.
    I think some tuberous dews are edible.

    I have also read that Drosera are used as a treatment for coughs...

    I would use an all green form to try as I have heard that some red pigments in plants can be toxic, can anyone verify this?

    I recall that drosera dew is the same stuff in aloe vera. Maybe it could be used on cuts and burns?

    Isnt the dew full of digestive enzymes. Proteins that cleave larger molecules into the constituent blocks. It cant be similar to Aloe Vera dew and I'd think putting it on a wound would not be very pleasant in a long run. The enzymes produced by VFT are similar to that of dew and can digest skin (check sarracenia.org).
