Insectivorous Plants like Pitcher Plants, Venus Fly Traps, Sundews and Bladderworts all have their own unique way to get hold of their prey which could be large and small insects. These tiny little Sundews can only handle the smaller insects like gnats and mosquitoes. Bladderwort grows in shallow water and only the little flowers are visible. Their prey are organisms living in the water.
