Yunzi Posted January 16, 2017 Report Share Posted January 16, 2017 Whilst looking up something else in wikipedia I came across the following quote: "Charles Darwin – erroneously believing Saxifraga to be allied to the sundew family (Droseraceae) – suspected the sticky-leaved Round-leaved saxifrage (S. rotundifolia), Rue-leaved saxifrage (S. tridactylites) and Pyrenean saxifrage (S. umbrosa) to be protocarnivorous plants, and conducted some experiments whose results supported his observations, but the matter has apparently not been studied since his time." Does anyone know any more about plants of this genus being protocarnivorous or know if any further work has been done in studying this? Or indeed, has it all been totally debunked?
