Vegetarian Food for Carnivorous Plants

project report

In contrast to other plants, carnivorous plants do not exclusively get their nutrients from the soil. They have evolved in a way that resembles animals in that they can digest insects and even small rodents. Based on books, the internet and our own experiments we investigate whether carnivorous plants can live on a vegetarian diet. We conducted experiments using Drosera capensis (cape sundew) and Nepenthes (tropical pitcher plant).
