i woke up in a cold sweat to make this
#its 3am :b:lease#i
need to find that one quote from the one botanist who said that
american pitcher plants were made by god to shield bugs from the sun#it was mentioned in one of the presentations i went to last week and i wrote down the dude’s name#in an incredible twist of fate the actual reason the pitchers existed……were much more sinister#carnivorous plants
Holy heck, they what?! Things were wild in the old botany fandom.
so in the presentation where they talked about this they cited a book called “Plants of the Southeast” published in 1712 but I have not for the life of me been able to find a pdf of it at all but in the process of searching for it i accidentally stumbled across the dark underworld of modern creationists REALLY struggling to explain carnivorous plants stop calling them cursed they’re just hungry!!!!!!!!!
