Hello all,
There was this old dead thread here on the FTC forums that had the same title as this thread,which was made to revive it.If you want to know how this works,then I suggest you visit the original thread,located here:
species-guessing-game-t46620.html
Technically,what a user does is give a hint or a few on a species of CP. You can comment 1 guess,and the user will comment if it is right or wrong.You can then guess again.The winner gets a free prize(E.G some CP seeds,a VFT cutting,or whatever the user has in hand).The cycle then starts again,with the winner giving out hints.
I will go first.Here are the hints:
1. it is named after a TV broadcaster
2. it is native to the phillipines
Anyone wish to play?
EDIT:
Nobody HAS to give a prize,as @ChefDean stated.It's all about the fun!

Multiple species of this "plant" developed carnivory initially to protect against parasites. Some have developed snares that trap microorganisms, others have developed cells like jellyfish that inject a paralyzing agent upon contact. They then secrete digestive enzymes to consume their prey, often while still alive, from the inside out.

I was thinking about this mystery species and researching genlisea when I came across arthrobotrys oligospora.
It's a fungus (not a plant), but it matches your description. It feeds on nematodes so it's technically carnivorous.
Here's the Wiki page... It's quite an interesting little organism.

The quotes mean that these species grow like a plant, with root like structures that bring in nutrients and water. The purpose of the carnivory has changed to include the absorption of nitrogen from their prey, as they grow in nitrogen poor places.
