Did you know that these strange plants are carnivorous? Flourishing in the wetlands of the Gulf Coast, these perennials have tubular leaves that collect water like a pitcher so they're favorite spots for insects. The plants lure their prey by secreting nectar along the tube's slippery rim where they fall inside & get trapped by the hairy lining of the leaves. Captured insects are dissolved by the digestive enzymes, converting the victims' bodies into nitrogen. What a weird and wonderful world we live in!
