Carnivorous Plants (CPs) can be described as plants which lure, trap and digest prey for the nutrients.
CPs come in many shapes and sizes and use a variety of methods to trap their victims. There are passive traps and active traps, some species are terrestrial and some aquatic. It is beyond the scope of this short article to tell everything about CPS. To get more detailed information into the different CPs (and in an attempt not to reinvent the wheel), you should go to the CP FAQ and discover all the interesting and amazing things these plants are capable of.
