All Kinds Of Carnivorous Plants
There are all kinds of Carnivorous Plants like Carnivorous Plants, Venus Flytraps, and Drosera ( Sundews).
The Venus Flytrap, Dionaea Muscipula, is a carnivorous plant native to subtropical wetlands on the East Coast of the U.S. in North Carolina and South Carolina. It catches its pray-chiefly insects and arachnids-with a trapping structure formed by the terminal portion of each of the plant's leaves and is triggered by tiny hairs on their inner surfaces. When an insect or spider crawling along the leaves contacts a hair, the trap closes if a different hair is contacted within twenty seconds of the first strike. The requirement of redundant triggering in this mechanism serves as a safeguard against a waste of energy in trapping objects with no nutritional value.
The Carnivorous Plant
Carnivorous plants are plants that derive some or most of their nutrients (but not energy)fromtrapping and consuming animals or protozoans, typically insects and other arthropods. Carnivorous plants have adapted to grow in places where the soil is thin or poor in nutrients, especially nitrogen, such as acidic bogs and rock outcroppings.
Drosera (Sundews), comprise as one of the largest genera of carnivorous plants, with at least 194 species. These members of the family Droseraceae lure, capture, and digest insects using stalked mucilaginous glands covering their leaf surfaces. The insects are used to supplement the poor mineral nutrition in the soil in which they grow. Various species which vary greatly in size and form, can be found growing natively on every continent except Antarctica.
