I believe you’ll find that carnivorous plants tend to thrive in areas of poor soil because there is less competition from thick-growing grasses, etc.

Just extending your remarks with regard to habitats and species:

Sundews are found all over Florida in sandy, wet areas such as wet pinewoods with poor nutrient content. I have seen them in Highlands, Okeechobee, Martin and Palm Beach Counties that I recall for certain, and surely there are many others.

I have seen Hooded Pitcher Plants in Highlands and Okeechobee counties, although that was many years ago.

White Top and Parrot Pitcher-plants are found in some areas of North Florida and the Panhandle, as are Purple Pitcher-plants and Trumpets (also members of the pitcher-plant family).

All the Florida species are threatened, with the exception of the White-top, which is endangered.
