Trichomes Trapping Insects

in #proofofbrain2 months ago (edited)

Hi All,

This is what I saw on one of the plants a few months ago...

Are trichomes a defense mechanism?


I'm thinking the right dose of gnats might not be so bad after all? If they trigger trichome development, then bring on the gnats minuse larvae...



Interesting concept :)
...seems for real

That kind of reminds me of the sundew carnivorous plant.

You're right they do.
