I have more carnivorous plants than I thought, with those in mind! Must admit, I find the actions of flytraps, sun dews and pitcher plants much more entertaining than my potatoes. But I do find my potatoes to be quite filling!

Potatoes don't make the cut to be carnivorous, The Carnivorous Plant FAQ: What do you mean by digestive mechanisms? (attribute #2) and The Carnivorous Plant FAQ: What do you mean by absorption pathways? (attribute #3) 1/3 of the way there for your taters!!! A little something for you to have fun "digesting" NEBogger!!!

What???
Here I was ready to claim so many more carnivorous plants. I will continue to feed my potatoes horse apples tho!
All kidding aside, thanks for the link. I should spend more time at that site, just don't spend much time on the computer anymore, just very short spurts.
