You are
A Dewy Pine!
This plant is some­thing of an anom­aly among car­niv­o­rous plants. It is the only one to live in a dry arid place and can live for months with­out a lot of water. Native to areas of Por­tu­gal and Spain, it is found on dry alka­line hills in a Mediter­ranean cli­mate. From a dis­tance these plants resem­ble pines, but a clos­er inspec­tion will reveal that each leaf is cov­ered in lit­tle red glands that have a dew-like sub­stance cling­ing to them. The dew smells a great deal like bee hon­ey and will lure many insects. When the insect lands, it finds itself caught in an oily drop and it will strug­gle to escape. The strug­gle only helps to pull the liq­uid free from the gland and as the entrapped insect slides down the leaf, it col­lects more of the vis­cous flu­id. After that, it drowns and is digest­ed at the base of the plant. If there was ever an unlike­ly car­niv­o­rous plant, the Dewy Pine is it.
