Wikipedia description

Roridula gorgonias is a protocarnivorous plant native to the Cape Provinces of South Africa. Like other species of Roridula, the plant secretes mucilage to trap insects, but does not directly digest them. Instead, it forms a mutualistic relationship with assassin bugs, whereby the assassin bugs eat the trapped insects and the plant gains nutrients from their droppings.
