There are about 195 species of sundew. These insect-eating plants have leaves covered with sticky hair-like growths. The sticky hairs trap insects and digest them. Then the insect’s nutrients are absorbed by the leaf. Sundews can even move to wrap around a trapped insect. The Cape sundew has long, thin leaves that roll up around trapped insects.
