CARNIVOROUS BROMELIADS (Brocchinia & Catopsis)

  • You may have heard of the Venus Fly Trap or the Pitcher plant, but did you know they are not the only plants that dine on bugs and other small prey?
  • Most bromeliads have unique ways of absorbing nutrients other than through their roots, but there are three particularly special species of bromeliads that get their nutrients from living creatures
  • Brocchinia hechtioides, Brocchinia reducta and Catopsis berteroniana are the only three bromeliads that are specifically adapted to trapping insects and using them for nourishment
