if this genus produce some enzyme like protease to dissolve insect it is a carnivorous plant like the others .
but we have need some scientifique article to complete this info
thats part...but not the whole story. in order for it to be carnivorous it has to: -attract prey -capture prey -digest the prey by enzymes, acids or other product of the plant -absorb the product
in theory Byblis, Darlingtonia, Roridula, Devils claw and Heliamphora are quasi-carnivorous as they either dont produce digestive juices or absorb the product. so why do we consider the above(except for devils claw and roridula) carnivorous? who knows.... the roadblock with Stylidium is the re-absorption.

One species of heliamphora shows enzyme production, but I forgot which one. The definition is too precise. If a plant wanted to be carnivorous but save energy, it would choose bacteria, and clearly heliamphora intend on catching insects.
Let's all go to Twikkii island*!
*Twikkii island is a sims 2 registered trademark and does not reflect any actual meaning whatsoever.
I think ti shoudl just be termed carnivorous if it obviously has adaptions to catch insects, and it obviosuly uses the insects for it's own use. Who cares how it goes about turning th einsects into food, so long as it does it? But anyway... that's what they term carnivorous so...

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
