Some times it is hard to be the youngest in the family. It seems like older siblings are trying to trick you into thinking dumb things.
So when the youngest grandchild called and said “Hey are there plants that eat meat?” I had to stop and think a minute. “Well they eat insects so I guess that is meat, I would have to say probably so.”
“So do you the know the names of those plants?”
“No, do you want me to find out and call you back?””
That is where this all began.
Now I know that there are five plants in North America that are carnivorous plants. This was new to me. Although I had heard of the Venus Fly Trap I thought it was something my brothers made up to make me look stupid. Apparently, I should have listened.
Here are the other plants: Pitcher plants, bladderworts, and the Cobra Lilly.
Do you ever go searching for answers for others?
