Hi everyone,

I seem to remember sometime back some mentions of the use of
various CP species in medicinal preparations particularly the
use of Pinguicula in Euope. I have just finished visiting a
web site where Dionaea extract is claimed to cure everything
from chronic fatigue syndrome to arthritis to ulcers to cancer
to aids. Pretty expensive too, either 177 DM or $ (I couldn't
tell) for 100 ml.

This information appeared in an article that appeared on the
herbs mailing list earlier today.

I thought it was an interesting bit of CP trivia to add to my
collection even if it did sound a lot like a 'snake oil'

For anyone who is interested, the web address is:

Have fun and good growing,
