Some info about carnivorous plants
December 22, 2012 2:35 PM Subscribe
I am a creative writer (NOT a gardener or botanist) and have some questions about carnivorous plants. I'm wondering what some of the more "out-there" examples of carnivorous plants are and how they work. I was also wondering how a person could modify a carnivorous plant so it doesn't eat insects (it doesn't matter if this would kill the plant; just need to know how to do it.) Have read wiki page and some other basic info.

Again, please keep in mind that I'm just using this info for creative writing projects, not as practical gardening advice. Also, since I'm not a gardener, my plant vocabulary isn't all that advanced.
