Sis forSundew

Scientific name: genus: drosera
Sundews are a large family of carnivorous plants. They catch insects on sticky glands on their leaves and digest them. Sundews live in poor soils and need the nutrients from insects that they cannot get from the soil. They get their name because the sticky substance they produce looks like beads of dew.
