How do they manage to survive, even though they don't transform their sugar into starch. First, there is the osmosis, that makes, that the cells get swollen by water until they "explode". The other thing is, that sugar is very attractive to nearly all insects and other animal which lives near the plant, so it gets attacked by them. (So the insects can have the sugar) Thank you
