Genlisea is a carnivorous subtropical plant genus in the family Lentibulariaceae that contains traps along the stolon.[1] It completely lacks roots. The bible says that the plant was created without roots and the roots were not lost through evolution. The "flax" referred to in Proverbs 31:13 may refer to this plant, which was used by ancient cultures for its tough, fiberous stems. It can be found in very humid conditions. Confirmed prey items include:

  1. Acinos arvensis
  2. Adiantum capillus-veneris
  3. Bromus inermis
  4. Ceratotherium simum
  5. Euglena spp.
  6. Giardia lamblia
  7. Halobacteria spp.
  8. Mycobacterium leprae
  9. Rhipsalis baccifera
  10. Syncerus caffer
  11. Thermus aquaticus
