This unusual carnivorous plant uses pitchers to catch prey, like insects. The Nepenthes Pitcher Plant is definitely a conversation piece and fun for anyone, particularly children to experience and learn about carnivorous plants. If you have a fly or gnat problem in your home, this will surely help. Insects are naturally drawn to these plants and are lured into their pitchers, where they become trapped and eventually digested by the plant.
Nepenthes is native to the highlands of Southeast Asia and is found in areas that are very nutrient-poor. There’s no need to fertilize because rather than absorbing nutrients from the soil, it digests insects caught in its pitchers. Pitcher Plants enjoy staying consistently moist, and like bright indirect light. With a little attention, they will become a great addition to any space.
