I am studying Marcel Lecoufle book on Carnivorous Plants Care and
Cultivation. On page seven he mentions that Drosera were used by the
pharmaceutical industry to provide an extract used medicinally as an
expectorant. Sarrencenia, I hear are also are used to produce some type of
medicine. Could some one point the way to more information on this subject?
Thank you,
