The pitcher plant’s leaves take the shape of deep containers where pools of water collect. Insects are attracted to the plant by its bright colouring, strong smell, or by nectar secreted around the rim of the pitcher. But they often lose their footing on the slippery and fall into the water and down. They gradually dissolve into a kind of insect broth which the plant digests.
Sundews( Cây gọng vó; cây ma cao)
Sundews have bright red leaves covered with hairs which produce a sweet sticky liquid. When an insect lands its feet getstuck to some of the hairs on the leaf. The nearby hairs bend toward the insect, surround it and suffocate it so that it can be digested. Butterworts:
The glistening golden leaves of the butterwort are a deadly glue trap. They produce a sticky substance which traps the insects when they land. But no matter how hard they struggle, the leaf edges curl inwards and the butterwort begins its lunch!
The leaves of the Venus Flytraps have a hinge right down the central vein and long sharp teeth along the edges. They have special hairs that are sensitive to the slightest pressure. When an insect lands on a leaf and touches at least two of these hairs- SNAP! The leaf closes on the insect in less than a second. When it has captured something, the trap stays closed for about a week, while the plant slowly digests its victim with its digestive juices. When it opens again, nothing is left of the unlucky insect but its skeleton.
