The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
It’s home to hundreds of carnivorous plants.
Now I’m familiar with the good old Venus fly trap.
And pitcher plants with a trap filled with sweetness at the bottom of a long tube that’s covered to prevent rain water flooding.
And of course there’s the Little Shop of Horrors.
But I hadn’t realised that the pitcher has such interesting flowers.
There were several varieties. Each had a top and bottom so that it might also have a reservoir and a cover.
They reminded me of umbrellas, with a cover and an open shape. They were very beautiful.
It was well worth the climb up the spiral stair case.
