Carnivorous plant exhibition

Sarracenia, 13 August 2017

As this blog wrote before, on 13 August 2017 we arrived at the carnivorous plants exhibition in Leiden botanical garden. Where we saw this Sarracenia, a North American plant. Among the species at the exhibition were Sarracenia oreophila, Sarracenia eva and Sarracenia leucophila.

Also at the exhibition was Nepenthes ampullaria from Asia. Though related to carnivorous plants, it is not really carnivorous itself. It does not produce enzymes to digest insects, but formic acid to digest fern leaves.

We went to the exit of the carnivorous plants exhibition hall, to see the rest of the botanical garden. Stay tuned!
