  5. Is this Scrophulariaceae species practicing carnivory Allen Lowrie and I have been working on breeding a large selection plant species, many of which do not always relate directly to this CP forum but if you grow carnivorous plants the majority of these plants do make fantastic companion plants. This particular Scrophulariaceae species shows signs it maybe be practicing carnivory which will be of interest to Pinguicula and Drosera enthusiasts. This Scrophulariaceae species is a leafy, very floriferous, compact, branching, Mexican Pinguicula-like plant with its leaves densely covered with gl

  10. Dear Ice00-san, Konnichiwa! About Byblis guehoi and Byblis 'Goliath', They can produce seed by self-pollinating when their inbreeding degree are low (When the homogeneity of their genes is low). Of course the seed pods are smaller, the seeds are smaller and low quality. The generation established with the autogamy hardly produces seeds by the autogamy. Some species(undescribed) were perfectly self-sterile from the beginning. Many Byblis species(i.e. characterized by the flowers bearing anthers as long or longer than their supporting filaments) are allogamous plants. Allogamous doesn't

  13. Dear Greg Allan-san, Konnichiwa! I do not have any document about isotope tests or enzyme. However I am still very interested in "Byblis glandular mucus: could it contain a sleeping drug come anesthetizing agent; nerve immobilizing agent and/or an insecticide?" In the past, I recognized that it was important for the prey to be in contact with the mucus. At this time, I think it might be a volatile material substance that is discharged by disturbance from the struggling prey.

  16. Dear all, Konnichiwa! A paper suggesting Stylidiaceae maybe practicing carnivory has just been published in the International Trigger Plant Society (ITPS) journal No. 2. The ITPS journal No. 2 is available as a free pdf download from www.triggerplants.org There is a lot of other articles as well as photos of many species. The attached photos of Stylidium carlquistii are yet other example of insect prey caught on the scape of a triggerplant. Kind regards from the Far East Stylidium carlquistii Stylidium carlquistii
