Yes they are Carnivorus plants, very little one. one of thos is Drosera indica really at the size of the nail of our thumb.We had catched the pictures of the plant with the insects. This plant is having the filaments with the lobes containig the sticky material. When the insect get attracted towards the plant( by its colour or other features), it get stucked on the filaments.Then slowly these filaments get themselve rolled over this insect and by these bulbs starting sucking the proteins from the insect. This process is of around 60 mnts.
There is onother variety of drosera we have seen in Lavasa city last year. Attaching the picture of it. Please see.

“I have to make some corrections in my photoes. Yes the red one is D.
burmani and green one is D.indica. Just a typing mistake. The last one
added by me is not the drosera but Utricularia sp. at Lavasa. Sorry
for the mistakes. Actually I am not a Botonist, So please forgive.
Nice pictures with flowering of D. indica. by Prashantaji. Thank you
for this sharing with us.
Don't know about the medicinal values of this plant. Plumbago
zeylanica is one of the plants I think preveously must be the drosera.
Because it is having the bulb with sticky filaments over it.
