Insect trapping plants,

Insectivorous plants:

 * Insect-eating plants grow in soil that is characterized by its lack of nitrogen, and its compensation for this element is through digesting insects, and in general it can be said that the method of hunting depends on attracting the insect to it, and then snapping it up and digesting it.  And fly croup, which we will deal with separately in this article.

 Names of insectivorous plants:

 - Nabant or "Al Salwa" is considered one of the most famous insect-eating plants, which grows in Borneo and tropical Asia, where this plant secretes sap to attract insects, and what doubles the deception of prey, is the enjoyment of this plant with leaves that exist  At the ends are small, red-colored "hooks" that contain a sugary liquid. As soon as the insect comes to it, the plant quickly applies the leaves to it, and what helps the success of this process is the softness of the texture inside the quail leaves, which facilitates the insect sliding, then falling into  Liquid, to start the insect's digestion process.

 - Dewy or Drosera or Drosera. The principle of catching insects in this type of plant is the secretion of a viscous sap, the insect attaches to it, then absorbs and digests that insect, and this is due to the fact that the upper part of the plant’s leaves is covered with small hair-like protrusions  .  As for the liquid that they excrete, it resembles drops of dew, and that is why it is called "dew". As soon as any insect touches one of these hairs until it is attached to it, all the hairs are applied to the insect, curved towards the center of the leaf, where there is a liquid that works to digest the insect

 * While the edges are characterized by being surrounded by sharp thorns, and as soon as the insect touches one of these hairs, the two valves close, so that the insect becomes trapped inside, and the growth of this plant is in swamps whose soil is characterized by a lack of the element of nitrogen, and therefore these insects that replace nitrogen  In the food that the plant makes,
