White Topped Pitcher Plant

white topped pitcher plant, Saracenia lucafilla
Pitcher plants specialize in growing in soils that are nutrient poor. To make a living, they trap insects in the water that collects in the pitchers and absorb the nutrients that are released as the dead insects decompose. The white topped pitcher plants are an elegant death trap.
