 Details : Cornivorous Plants: Flora Evolution for Survival

     Each living creature in the world has evolved for their survival according to their natural selection. Plants in areas with scarce water and sunshine have developed into carnivores, catching insects for their own survival.

     Nepenthes mirabilis (Lour.) Druce, or pitcher plants, are normally seen in wet forests. They have pitchers to catch insects and the pitchers possess organs to digest the insects. People in Southern Thailand steam rice in the pitchers.

     Rafflesia kerrii Meijer is a parasite that lives on the roots of other plants. Its simple flower is quite large and blossoms on the ground. In full bloom, it emits a bad oder to entice flies to pollinate.

     Sapria poilanei Gagnep is a plant in the same family as Rafflesia kerrii Meijer that similarly lives on the roots of other plants and looks like a cuspidor, pink and Orose.

     Drosera burmannii Vahl is a small short-cycle plant without a stem. It often grows in open, rocky ground with high humidity. The plant possesses medicinal properties use to cure ringworm.
