Some insectivorous plants are partially heterotrophic. They have various means of capturing insects so as to supplement their diet with Nitrogen derived from insects, as they live in nitrogen deficient soil. The examples include pitcher plant (Nepenthes), Venus fly trap, Bladderwort and sundew plant (Drosera).
