I was interested to read on
http://bodd.cf.ac.uk/BotDermFolder/BotDermD/DROS.html about various Drosera:
"These species have been reported to contain plumbagin, a naphthoquinone
which produces vesication on skin contact (Thomson 1971)."
In English, this means: These species have been reported to contain
plumbagin, a blood clotting agent which produces blistering on skin contact
Has anyone had any experience of this?
