    A CP without its carnivorous structures would seem rather dull. Like CP2K said, a Sarr/Nep/Ceph/Heli with no pitchers would be boring. A vft with no trap, a sundew with no dew, that would suck [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] CP's are interesting because of their unique trap structures. I also grow many other types of plants, but I have one requirement, they must have some unique or weird characteristics. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    If they are deprived of their sources I doubt I would collect cps(no pitchers on a nep or sarrs, no traps on a vft, and so on). It would be a boring plant...But if nothing changed and the plant did not eat insects I am pretty sure I would have a few [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] . Like CP2K and Larry mentioned they need to be different. That is why I own zero flowers, zero vines, and so on...I do love plants just the odd ball ones! I do enjoy flowers and such but they will not be taking up room in my home [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] .

    Question

    I like to grow all plants. especialy indoor plants that make you feel like you are below the canapy of a forest like when you are packed into a jisnt greenhouse and you cant even see the sides because there are so many plants. If it wasn't for the love of the average plant than I think I would have never stumbled across cp.

    id still grow them probably , but its hard to imagine growing a plant with no traps , bladders , pitchers , or dews . but what do you mean by if still growing a carnivorous plant if its not carnivorous , would'nt it be called something else except of " carnivorous " , but then i also grow other exotic plants such as aroids , orchids ,and other tropics . i usually only grow plants that have some cool feature , imagine me growing a sunflower , how boring ( to me that is ) , if i grew a nepenthes with no pitchers, i would'nt know if i'd grow it , if i grew a flytrap with no traps i don't really thing i'd grow it , i agree with larry and cp2k , i would'nt grow a plant unless it had a unique characteristic .

    I suppose the answer would be yes. But it's hard to say. I think the fact that they are carnivorous plays a really big part in my draw to them.

    But I like exotic things. There is something about "something" that takes special care. Whether it be roasting coffee beans (one of my most favorite joys) or carefully preparing a micro-climate for a rare or exotic plant; they both require a little research and TLC to create.

    For me, it's the process; the fact they eat things, that's a bonus!!!

    Yes, I think that I would because of their unusual shapes and their difference from the usual home-grown plants. I don't have the luxury of having a greenhouse, so the main reason that I like them is that so many of them are small and I can grow larger numbers of them in smaller growing areas.
