Pitcher Plants

I had never seen pitcher plants before so when I saw these at a botanical garden in Richmond, Virginia, I had to take a picture! They are so interesting because they so different. I love their long tubular shape. Insects become trapped in a deep fluid-filled cavity and become food. That makes this plant carnivorous! This one is the North American pitcher plant of the genus Sarracenia.


  1. Tu es raison!
    Vous ne pouvez pas vivre bien ici si vous etes un insecte!

    You are right!
    You cannot live well here if you are an insect!
