    The pitcher plant gets the nutrients just like any other plant . It extracts water and minerals from the soil and nourished by the process of photosynthesis. However, the soil it grows on it intensively moisturizes the skin, nitrogen, and so the use can kill the small insects, and then blends them to produce the nitrogen it needs.

    The pitcher plant has a double-a healthy diet. It carries out the process of photosynthesis, as it is the chlorophyll content, with the use of carbon dioxide, water and sunlight, as well as the carbs. It grows in swampy areas, marshes, where there is a nitrogen deficiency, so it is a saprophytic nutrition, in order to replenish the nitrogen-deficiency. Then pulled the cover and in the deep space is a trap. It attracts flies and other insects with the help of the pigment anthocyanin out of its cavity. It’s the void, which is serrated, and non-slippery, preventing the insects from jumping out and the method in which the insects to digest is converted to ammonia, phosphate, and urea nitrogen absorbed by the plant.
