Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 What other plant are carniverous? The Nepenthes, Monkey Trap uses a sticky substance at the bottom of a pitcher-like leaf to attract flies and other small insects although they have been known for catching and digesting entire mice. The sticky substance found iin the Monkey Trap is muchlike the substance found inTriffid cups. This information could be used to find a way toneutralize the enzymes in it that cause it to digest itsfood. If cannot digest and get nutriant from its food it willnot be able to function. Venus Fly Trap catches its prey by closing it "mouth" the moment some-thing touches its sensory hairs. This is caused when at least two hairs send an electrical signal and the action that follows is a machanical impulse. A plant called the buttertwort is a flowerthat traps bees and other small insects.It bears small hairs on the petals of itsyellow flower to sense an insect touchingit. It also has a sweet nectar that attractsbees into a trap where the flower closesup when hairs are triggered. The Triffids could also be a kind of plant that uses electrical pulses to send signals to the brain-like organ found in the Triffid stem. To stop the Triffid problem, something could be done to stop the electrical pulse fromhappening. The Triffid is surprisingly similar to the butterwort. They both resemble flowers,and have a sticky, digestingnectar. This could be helpful to find a process to eliminate or at least neutralize the Triffid species. Conclusion From the research gathered about plant that are similar, the solution to the problem is to try to clone the Triffids but make changes to themso, over time, the wholepopulation of Triffids would be neutral. This change would be done by modifying the DNA so theTrifffid would be unable to produce the digestive nectar or sense movement.
