Round-leaved Sundew

The Sundews are insectivorous perennials. They digest the proteins from the small insects they trap, probably to supplement their nitrate nutrition because their normal acid bog habitats are nutrient-deficient.

Sundew superstitions

Because of the sundew's ability to attract insects people 'naturally' assumed it would help them attract a boyfriend/girlfriend.
If you want to try it, slip a leaf in the pocket of the one you want to be attracted to you.
Good Luck!
