1. What is this? Hooded Pitcher Plant

Hooded Pitcher Plant Collage

A carnivorous plant that lures in insects into its structure to trap it. There are many other types of carnivorous plants; the most commonly known is the Venus flytrap! You can think of them as cousins in a related family tree.

This is a special plant that needs your care, it is considered threatened, and may go extinct if you don’t help it to thrive. Do not pick its flower or step on it!

This is a “native plant” —  here before Colonization — a member of the natural habitat of  Florida and a very special part of the land and the history of Florida.
