Nectar glands on the leaf's surface attract the prey
and each lobe of the
leaf has three pressure-sensitive hairs which react
to the movements of an
insect and cause a chemical to be released that
triggers the trap. This
happens very fast and the leaf closes in less than a
enzymes are then secreted from glands on the
surface. Any one leaf is good
for three or four trappings before it dies.
