Here's one of my favorite genus of carnies. Drosera. This one caught a bug and is pulling it to the small glands in the middle of the inside of the leaf. It's the small glands that actually do the eating; the bigger tentacles just catch and position the prey

I really love your plant collection. I collected quite a few insectivores for a while but ran out of room. I just found a bog in Ohio where they grow natively, It was news to me but sure enough I snatched a couple to take home.
