Green World Ecological Park

Carnivorous Plants Area

Do you know what carnivorous(insectivorous) plants are? They refer to a group of plants with special structures to trap and consume insects as snacks or additional dishes. Grown in barren and acidic soil, they can barely get adequate nutrients from the soil, so they need to trap and consume insects to supplement protein to maintain life. Green World has collected over 100 species of valuable insectivorous plants from Australia and South America. Just the pitcher plant alone, there are over 20 species. The largest one is even larger than an ordinary PE bottle, it is thus called the nepenthes truncate. Different insectivorous plants have different insect trapping structure and methods, and have different lineages and evolution routes. As they are mysterious and have difference faces, every species is worthy of exploration.
