The Sarraceniaceae, unlike any other plants in the Western Hemisphere, derive their common name from their hollow tubular leaves, which can take the form of a trumpet, a pitcher, or an urn. These leaves passively capture prey lured to the leaf’s mouth by its glistening surfaces or unusual coloration and transparent patches.

Once an insect or other organism falls into the pitcher, stiff downward-pointing hairs and slippery walls prevent it from crawling back out, eventually drowning in the liquid at the bottom of the pitcher. Protein-digesting enzymes and bacteria break down the insect’s body, allowing nitrates and other valuable nutrients to be absorbed by the plant to supplement the poor soil conditions of its environment.
