One of plants is interesting for me, called as “carnivorous plant) with scientific name Sarracenia sp.

One of well-known species in Louisiana is Sarracenia alata. There are at least 8 species in the USA, some of them are:

- yellow plants with scientific name Sarracenia flava.
- sweet trumpets, Sarracenia rubra.
- purple pitcher plants, Sarracenia purpurea.
- pale trumpets, S. alata.

What make me wonder is that What is the “main reason” Specific Plants to Trap Animals?



Image 3- Picture of carnivorous plants

After searching through internet that the reason is to consume them. Generally, we know that animals eat plant, we call it “herbivorous.”

Then, why?

It is because soil “can’t support” their live. In evolutionary process, the plants then consume animals for nutrients they require for surviving.

Some nutrients taken from animals are:

- sulfur
- phosphorus and nitrogen

Finally, have you seen carnivorous plants nature?

  6. Hello
    I've always left it on all the blogs and no one has ever accused of a virus. I know there are many bloggers who don't like it, so I agree and respect it. No viruses. But thanks for the feedback.
