So, you mean that plants who live together with bacteria aren\222t
carnivorous\205 What do you think about Heliamphora? I think Heliamphora
(and Darlingtonia, I think) lives also together with bacteria\205 Isn\222t
Heliamphora carnivorous?
Can you tell me more about that?

Kinds regards,

Sam Vanderstraeten.
