WASN'T THIS A MOVIE IN THE FIFTIES?

Wasn't this covered in 1951 by that fine documentary "Day of the Triffids"?

That looks nothing like a sundew. Sundews are almost exactly venus flytraps except instead of a trap, they have a pad covered with those sticky hairs. When something is caught in the hairs, the pad slowly closes like a flytrap, reopening when the meal is digested.

'meat-eating pitcher plant' ? . . . shouln't that be a 'catcher' ?

nttawwt

Joe in Japan is a lot more careful on his nature walks now. Also I can't stop singing that "I am a dentist" song from Little shop of Horrors.
