A fascinating plant for its strange appearance and its carnivorous activity. The “pitchers” produced by the plant are a means of luring in insects, trapping them in the fluids of the pitcher, and then absorbing the nutrients as the insect dissolves. Native to lowland wet regions of Sri Lanka. A true specimen plant. Fun and educational for kids to grow.
Perfectly suited to hanging baskets to display the pitchers to best advantage. A single plant on a plant stand would also allow the pitchers to dangle freely. Thrives in hot humid conditions and would do well near a bright bathroom or kitchen window.
