Witches' brew

The elegant long throats on these pitcher plants (Sarracenia) have a deadly purpose: to swallow bugs after luring them in with a liquid in the top flaps. “Bugs get so drunk off the nectar that you can just watch them fall right in,” says Rob Co, a Northern California carnivorous-plant collector.

To grow: Pitcher plants can grow outside, except in the coldest climates. Indoors, give them bright light.
