Kinds of Carnivorous Plants

This section of the FAQ is dedicated to taxonomy (botanical classification). The first few pages discuss background, general information. After that I describe aspects of each genus of carnivorous and "para-carnivorous" plants. I even throw in some information about non-carnivorous plants that folks ask me about because of tenuous or perceived connections to carnivorous plants.

I warn you right now, O Gentle FAQ Reader...the geekness factor of the FAQ gets stratospherically high in this part of the FAQ, especially where I start talking about the individual species. The joke factor is low, the fact density is high. Strap yourself in, you're going for a ride!
