Pitcher Plant At Big Thicket National Preserve

Pitcher plant at Big Thicket

Other carnivorous plants, such as the pitcher plant, can be found along Big Thicket's trails. Unlike the dwarf sundew, the pitcher plant attracts insects through veins baited with nectar. The insects fall into the mixture of rain, dew and a digestive enzyme. For more information about visiting Big Thicket, go to the National Park Service's website.
