Not this way. Bacteria live together with almost everything. Only
plants that *depend* on microbes (or other organisms) for digestion
are sub-carnivorous (at the most).

Once again (I have written this at least two times on this list
already, I fear some subscribers are becoming a little tired of
reading it again and again), _Heliamphora tatei_ *does* have
endogenous proteolytic activity.

_Darlingtonia_ is presently under investigation.

Kind regards
