Florida's Carnivorous Plants: A Presentation from Author Kenny Coogan
Learn about Florida's endemic carnivorous plants! Florida has dozens of native species of carnivorous plants––more than any other state in the United States—including sundews, butterworts, bladderworts, and pitcher plants. These plants use appealing scents, leaves, and sticky fluids to trap and imprison insects. Digestive fluids then absorb the prey giving the plant its nutrients.
Learn the evolution, people, and natural history of Florida to discover why Florida is a hotspot of carnivorous plants.
