Caption: Pitcher plant's trap. This is a carnivorous plant, using scent, nectar and colour to attract insects to its trap (pitcher). When insects fall into the liquid at the bottom of the pitcher they are trapped and dissolved by digestive enzymes. This provides the plant with nutrients, such as phosphorous and nitrogen. Pitcher plants are found in nutrient-poor habitats, such as swamps.
