    Well, I'm quite the newbie to cps myself, and probably some more ppl here are, so I have a smallish request for some of the more experienced ppl here;
    Could someone please post a glossary list of the anatomical bits on vfts?

    This would help at least me, a great deal, as I wouldnt have to keep referring to stuff as 'The like spiky bits on the edges of the taco shell thingy' and the likes of that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Thanks /Quensel

    Right, okay.
    The hairs inside the trap of the VFT are called trigger hairs.
    The leaf below the trap is called a peristome, although I just call it normal leaf. The teeth are called cilla(I think they are called that) although I just say teeth.
    The thick underground root they grow from is called a rhizome.
    Thats about it I think.
    If I missed anithing out that you want to know about, just tell me.

    the leaf that holds the traps up are the petioles
    all the things that star said, and the wiry protrusion from the rhizome are the roots (Duh [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img])
