Hello Nélio and welcome to cpuk!

I have never been to Madeira, but must for sure be a wonderful place to live! Somehow surprising, that there are no native cps to Madeira, if I am right.

Yes its a great pleace to leave, and grow cps. We have only the Aeonium glutinosum that caches lots of
insects during the blooming time, as these photos shows, but nit sure if it can be considered a proto-carnivorous plant.
