How do plants get rid of solid wastes?

Most plants do not have solid wastes. Only those plants that eat insects have solid wastes. The venus fly trap and sundew let the rotted bodies of insects fly away in the wind when they open up. In the pitcher plant, the rotted bodies decompose in the bottom of the water trap. Plants that do not eat insects do not have any solid wastes to get rid of. They get their nutrients from the soil with their roots, they also take in water, and take in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. They do not have solid wastes.
