Drosera rotundifoliaFamily: Droseraceae
Japanese: モウセンゴケ (Mousen-goke)
The common sundew is a carnivorous plant. Sticky drops on the leaf hairs hold insects while the leaves close in (so I hear) about 20 or 30 minutes. Look for them on steep, well-lit moss-covered rock walls at all elevations where water drips constantly.
