Australian Pitcher Plant

Cephalotus follicularis ,a pitcher plant with ground-hugging,rosette arrangment.
The pitchers radiate from a central point,along with non-carnivorous leaves.Each plant will have three to five pitchers,arranged radially. The trap type is similar to Sarracenia or Nepenthes,utilizing an attractant around the rim of the pitcher.The inside of the walls are smooth and slick,providing no purch for an insect..The prey falls to the bottom of the pitcher,where it encounters a fluid bath containing wetting agents and digestive chemicals.
