Description:

The Pitcher Plant (Nepenthes Ventrata) is a tropical carnivorous plant native to parts of South East Asia, India, Madagascar and Australia. These plants get the nutrients from digesting insects. The pitcher itself is a swelling of the mid-vein in the leaf that is filled with digestive fluid. The nectar the plant secretes lures insects into the pitcher and the slippery rim and inner walls of the pitcher help trap the insect which eventually fall into the digestive fluid at the bottom of the trap.

Fun fact: Pitcher plants can trap and digest larger animals such frogs and mice!

Care tips: These plants are best grown in porous, low-fertility mixes (high nutrient soil is not require since the plant collects its nutrients from its insect pray). They enjoy wam temperatures and high humidity.


Comes in 3-3.5" standard plastic nursery pot
