BTW, you are aware that Stylidium isn't carnivorous aren't you? The
"hammer" on a Trigger Plant is used for pollination. When the right insect
lands on the flower, it "triggers" it and a "dollop" of pollen is stuck to
the insect's back. When it visits another Trigger, that one will pick up
some of the pollen and be fertilised.

It can be a bit of fun triggering them with a small stick.
