    I am really into herbal remedies and have myself used some of my Drosera rotudifolia leaves to cure persistent cough and chest congestion I would be eager to cautiously experiment with D. burmannii and see what affects it truly has (I'm plant crazy i know) but truly herbs are something of miracles when it comes to health..... Thankyou for posting this !

    Awesome, I learned something new today. Regarding what hcarlton said earlier about Nepethes, a study in 2010 showed anti fungal property in the secondary metabolites in Nepethes.
    The collaborating team has determined plant secondary metabolites that function as anti-fungal agents. "The pitcher of the carnivorous plant produces these compounds in a gland," says Prof. Zilberstein. Until now, no one has published or discussed the anti-fungal metabolites found in the trap liquid of this plant, she says.

    Quite interesting, isn't it?

    Here are a couple of antique Drosera bottles I've picked up over the years.

    I found these at some of the area flea markets. They're the only 2 I've ever seen at a reasonable price. I found a larger Drosera apothecary jar at Brimfield last year but, they wanted waaayyy too much for it. I have quite a few CP related antiques including prints, pins, a Sarracenia purpurea tea cup and other various trinkets and bobbles.
