    S. rubra ssp. gulfensis "Gaint"

    i have been off the forums for a long time, i know i have a LOT of back reading and general catch up to do. i couldn't help myself, and picked up another plant from a local nursery. the tag reads (printed) " Sarracenia hybrid" and in pencil "gulf.

    make sure to scrub it good & cook it up. should be fine with that. ...unless the aniamal you're putting it with is sensitive to a particular wood. make sure to soak it if you're putting it in the oven or microwave. they do catch fire. i've heard others like to place the item within a plastic...

    Genetics dna on pbshd.  genetically altered plant

    Genetics dna on pbshd.  genetically altered plant

    they've already had animal DNA in plants for a very very very long time now. and the best part about it is you're already eating it too, it is in the food supply. pig & fish genes in strawberries, fish in corn & tomatoes, the list is absolutly HUGE of altered foods. it's not just animal genes...
