Non-Carnivorous Plants

Plants that eat other organisms are a specialized group, but not the only novelty out there in the botanical kingdom of course. Fruits that make one's mouth feel like fire, flowers that smell like dead creatures or look like strange organs or mimic other living things, or leaves and fruits that secrete toxins that can kill in hours; these are just a handful of the wild developments that plants have evolved, and often just as attractive to horticulturalists as showy blooms or delicious food producers. 

This section will mostly have sheets on the species or genera grown by Carlton Carnivores, but contributions are welcome so that a large collection of facts and photos on the weird and wild among plants can be had by those interested in growing them or, for those lucky enough to travel where they're found, see them in the wild.
