Pitcher Plant

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by threecats, Sep 7, 2008.

  1. Is that a little bug caught in the water? Those are some neat looking plants. I dont think I have ever seen them! Awesome shot! :smile:
     
  2. Yes it is. I don't know if that plant traps insects on purpose like venus fly traps or not.

  3. Very nice pics glenn, a surprising array of shades of green.

    Yes it is a carnivorous plant.
    A quick paste.

    Visiting insects, falling into this water, are drowned and digested by the action of enzymes secreted by cells located in the walls of the pitcherlike structures of these plants.
