    It might be a precise distribution map, but it ignores my alpine are entirely where this plant is abundant.

    The FNA distribution map does not coincide very well with the BONAP map.

    It is worth pointing out that quite a number of very “sticky” plants indeed do turn out to be passively carnivorous even in the absence of identifiable digestive enzymes. Recent work using nitrogen isotopes argue that many of these plants absorb nutrients from the insects that become attached to the glandular hairs on stems and leaves.

      Just what I was going to comment. Especially considering that just one of those bogs poor in nutrition with Triantha glutinosa also has Sarracenia purpurea, Drosera linearis, Drosera rotundifolia and Utricularia cornuta.

    Thanks for highlighting the natives…people are so interested, but so “I don’t have a green thumb” about plants, without realizing that they could be protecting plants like this instead of growing them.
