I'm going to be loading some carnivorous plants photos into the db & need to know more about the parts of carnivorous plants. I tried to find a forum on them but couldn't. Who in the ATP family has good knowledge of these?
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Dave, I've been doing some research on the sundews - Drosera & it seems to me since these items are such an integral part of the plant that we should have in the db for all Drosera photos a listing for close up tentacles & one for close up mucilage besides the leaf. And perhaps even one for close up of glands.

No help here Ann but it might be nice to have Carnivorous under either Plant Habit or Miscellaneous for those who would like to do a search by this characteristic.

I can't believe we never thought to add carnivorous before! Well, it's in there now, under Miscellaneous. Thanks both of you! I tip my hat to you.
