Fun Fact Friday! Did you know that through the course of evolution, the adaptation of trapping and digesting prey has arisen at least nine times throughout various plant families in response to soil lacking nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. These traps are composed of highly modified, specialized leaves and reside in nutrient deficient soils. The carnivore pictured here is the white topped pitcher plant (Sarracenia leucophylla) and is specific to the southeast corner of the United States. These species are protected and grow right here in Northwest Florida!
