SalviaFan Here, Yes this is in fact a meat eating plant. Many must wonder what kind of meat and how much can this plant take in at one time. Further more it would also be nice to document an experiment on Feeding the plants a huge amount of rats and discover the extent of this plants new and fast growth habits.
