Why could potatoes be considered “carnivorous” plants?

    Most of these plants are not generally thought of as carnivores is because they have not been found capable of digesting what they entrap as more obvious carnivorous plants do. Still, because roots can readily absorb nutrients released from decaying corpses, nearly all plants are capable of carnivory. To prove the point, researchers can dose insects with mildly radioactive nutrients, so scientists can then track such molecules to see if the plants are really absorbing them, which would show they are benefiting from killing prey.
