Carnivorous plants

I asked @abbyo for blog advice. She said that what was on her mind was carnivorous plants. So I will blog about that. first things first, you must know the difference between carnivorous plants and protocarnivorous plants. Carnivorous plants can trap and eat their prey, but protocarnivorous plants lack the ability to digest their prey.

Now we will discuss the five main ways of trapping:

•the pitfall trap traps prey by rolling it into a leaf with lots of slime in it

•a trap which is effectively fly paper using sticky fluid

•a trap know a snap trap which uses fast leaf movement to catch its prey

•bladder traps suck in prey with a vacuum

•lobster pots move prey towards a digestive organ with inward pointing hairs

thank you for your time, bye, Douglas
