When time and funding permit, each flower (each plant species) will have its own page, and its own PDF, and eventually its own PPT so that professors and students have plenty of material on Guatemala (and Honduras, etc) to study.

Passiflora foetida is a wild passion fruit native from Central and South America. Its leaves, bracts and petioles are covered by a sticky whitish hairiness, which gives off the characteristic odor. The bracts serve as insect traps and also possess the mechanism to digest the trapped insects to obtain free aminoacids, that’s why it is considered a carnivorous or protocarnivorous plant. Is commonly used as an ornamental plant, but it also has gastronomic and medical applications.
