Subject: Is N. bicalcarata piosonous?

I inspect my plants everyday and one day noticed a tiny inchworm crawling
on a N. b. leaf. I was about to pick it off when I saw it chew a hole 2mm
across in the leaf, but before I did it started spasing. It was wipping
back and forth like it was having an eptileptic seiser (I probably
spelled that wrong). After about 20 sec. or so it fell over. I pushed it
around with a small stick and it didn't move. It later turned stiff and
dried up. It died. Note: I did not use any pestisides, bacterialsides,
fungisides, fertilizer,etc. The only thing I put on them is rain water
and distilled water; H2O; dihydrogen monoxide. So I thinking that
something in the plant killed it. Hmmmmmm???
