There are over 180 species of sundews in the world, with some occurring on every continent except Antarctica - 3 species are native to Scotland. Typically found in wet areas with acidic, nutrient-poor soils, these carnivorous plants gain food from insects that are digested by enzymes secreted from their tentacles. The resultant nutrient soup is absorbed through the leaf surface.
