How do pitcher plants operate?



  1. 0 Votes

    Pitcher plants attract their prey by attracting them with plant parts that insects generally identify as nectar-producing mechanisms. The insides are smooth and unclimbable, so once an insect lands inside, it lands in the water contained inside, and drowns. Digestion of the insect occurs with either enzymes the plant secretes, or bacteria by regular decay over time.
