On Friday October 10th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, Join Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman as they discuss the carnivorous pitcher plants of North America. These fascinating plants catch and feed on insects to get the nitrogen they need to survive in the boggy areas they are found.Pitcher plants are several different carnivorous plants that have evolved modified leaves known as a pitfall trap – a prey-trapping mechanism featuring a deep cavity filled with liquid. Tune in for another exciting show !
On Wednesday November 19th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst. join host Ken McKeighen as he and Ken Boorman continue their discussion of the carnivorous plants with the bladderworts, which are fully aquatic plants that feed on water creatures they trap. This will be an interesting show about another unusual plant family. Bladderworts are unusual and highly specialized plants, and the vegetative organs are not clearly separated into roots, leaves, and stems as in most other angiosperms.
On Friday Octuber 31st, at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, Join host Ken McKeighen as he is joined by Ken Boorman to continue their discussion on carnivorous plants. The genus Aldorandra will be investigated and it's amazing ability to trap it's prey with the fastest trap action of any plant. Aldrovanda is a free-floating and rootless aquatic plant. This plant is closely related to the Venus flytrap Dionaea muscipula, and shares many of its attributes--it functions as a snap-trap carnivore, just under water! A common name for it is the waterwheel plant because a single whorl of leaves, cut from a stem, is wheel-like, as you can see to the right! The genus name commemorates the Italian naturalist Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605). In fact, the name for the genus was originally "Aldrovandia", but Linnaeus misspelled this, and we use the incorrect spelling even today.
Each leaf in a whorl terminates in a little clam-like trap. Exactly how the trap captures prey is a little complicated. Just like the traps of a Venus flytrap, the trap lobes of Aldrovanda contain trigger hairs. When stimulated, these cause the traps to close. SNAP! The closure takes about 1/4 to 1/2 second, which is impressive when you reflect upon the fact that the trap lobes must push water as they close. If no prey is captured, the trap reopens in ten to twenty hours.
The strange snapping behavior of the plant was observed by De Sassus as early as 1861, but it was not until Darwin's careful work was there proof it was probably carnivorous. We now know that indeed, the traps produce phosphate-digesting enzymes, and that traps fed with radioisotope-labeled Daphnia absorb the prey.
On Friday October 24th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, join Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman as they discus the sundews, an amazing group of carnivorous plants that can be found worldwide. These interesting plants live in nitrogen poor soils and have evolved to digest insects as a source of nutrients. Ken Boorman will explain how to successfully keep these plants in the home. Join both Kens on Friday, Oct. 24 on Natures Talk Show (formerly the Under the Sea Radio Show) at 8:00 pm eastern, 7:00 pm central and 5:00 pm Pacific on Blogtalk.
In this episode of Aquatics Euphoria Don Boyer and I will be discussing aquatic plants.

Plants also add beauty to your aquarium. Come join us live this Saturday 3 PM EST for a wonderful show.
On Friday October 3rd at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst please join Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman for the second discussion on the Carnivorous Plant known as the Cobra Lily. What a truly beautiful carnivorous plant. It likes cool weather and the roots must be kept cool which can be done with regular watering or ice cubes. Cobra Lilies can grow up to 4 feet tall, but typically average the 18-24 inches. The plant secrets a sweet sticky substance to attract insects. Once there, the insects move deeper into the plants pitcher and they get trapped in hairs. The insect is then digested providing the plant with essential nutrients. Cobra ranges from yellow or light green to purple complete with awesome looking fangs!

Smoke, religion at center of Seneca pot case
Blue Mountain Eagle (Oregon)
Defense attorneys cite religious freedom in seeking dismissal of the case.
CANYON CITY – The 13 pot plants seized in a Seneca drug bust last June were either an illegal marijuana grow or a sacramental garden.
That contradiction set the stage last Thursday in Grant County Circuit Court as attorneys argued whether marijuana charges against Joy Maxine Graves and Raymond Scott Martin should stand.
Attorneys for Graves and Martin have moved to dismiss the case, contending it conflicts with their clients’ right to religious freedom. The defendants claim marijuana is an earth-based sacrament central to the rites of their branch of the Oklevueha Native American Church.
Deputy District Attorney Matthew Ipson countered that the state law prohibiting marijuana grows within 1,000 feet of a school is “a statute of general applicability.”
In court filings, he argued the state’s interest in restricting marijuana near schools is compelling, and that “the statute is applied equally without regard to religious beliefs or affiliation.”
