Sundew, the midge eating plant

Insect eating Sundew in an Alaskan MuskegSundew are some of the coolest plants we get to show our guests. They catch insects in their sticky dew-like secretions as a way to get nutrients that are not available in the nutrition poor muskeg. They’re also small and easily missed.

This photo was taken on one of our Petersburg to Juneau Alaska Inside Passage cruises in June of 2019.
