Vegetarian Carnivores. The first video in our new series "Siggi's CP Info" Is it possible to grow your carnivorous plants with vegetarian diet? Our first film from the new “Siggi’s CP Info” series provides the answer. Carnivorous plants predominantly capture and digest arthropods like insects, spiders or little crustaceans. Some of the largest tropical pitcher plants are even known to eat real meat, mostly small vertebrates like mice or reptiles. But what happens if you feed vegetarian food to the carnivores? Even Charles Darwin pointed out that in times of high pollen abundance the sticky traps of sundews and butterworts accumulate large amounts of pollen. Does that mean carnivorous plants are also happy with vegetarian food? Here are the results of a survey on Facebook and YouTube prior to this upload: Is it possible to feed carnivorous plants with vegetarian food? YES: 52% - NO: 36% - ONLY TEMPORARY: 12%
