"most stickiest glue in nature"? "Capensis"?

Wow. Unbelievable. She must have some Binata there, to have the "most stickiest" glue in all of nature.

What are we talking about, glue as produced by a plant specifically for that purpose? Because if so, spider web glue is much, much stickier than Binata, and if we open up the category to plants that produce substances that aren't necessarily intended to be glue, then Binata isn't even in the running.

I can't speak for the other sundew species, but I strongly suspect their leaves aren't even capable of holding up to a substance as sticky as, say, pine sap.

Should clarified, as in reference to sundews, sorry.
