Venezuela: Mt Roraima – Roraima Sundew

The flora in top of Mount Roraima has to survive in the harsh environment of cold temperature (only 5-10 C/40-50 F), constant rain and fog, and practically no soil. One of the most remarkable plants is the Roraima Sundew (Drosera roraimae). This species of the carnivorous plant grows only on top of Roraima and nowhere else on Earth (other species of sundews are pretty common in marshy soul elsewhere). The tiny red plant is almost devoid of chlorophyll and derives all its nutrients by catching insects with its leaves full of droplets of digestive fluids.
