Drosera Oblanceolata Carnivorous Plant

Share/Bookmark

Carnivorous plants gain some of their nutrients from trapping and consuming animals or protozoans, typically insects and other arthropods. Carnivorous plants may be subdivided into 2 major groups, first with passive traps and the second with active traps. Drosera is covered with dense, gland-tipped hairs. Several tiny midge flies are stuck to the sticky hairs. They will be slowly, enzymatically digested and absorbed by the plant.
