Description: The tentacles of Drosera species are specialised stalked glands on the leaf's upper surface that produce a sticky mucilage. The leaves are considered active flypaper traps that respond to captured prey by bending to surround it. This is known as thigmotropism. Some species of sundew can envelop their prey in less than a minute.
