The ragged pitcher plant is the only known species of predatory underwater plant on 4546B. It grows on mineral rich hydrothermal deposits.

The bowl shaped ‘pitcher’ produces a concentrated brine that pools inside due to its high density. When small organisms get too close they are stunned, causing them to sink into the pitcher where they are dissolved and absorbed by the plant.
