Nepenthes, Tropical Pitcher Plant

Nepenthes,

(aka Tropical Pitcher Plants OR monkey cups – but do not drink from them!!)

These pitchers do not discriminate and attract a wide range of foraging, flying and crawling insects. They are however particularly effective ROACH AND ANT eaters!

The bigger they get, the more they can eat and in time some can grow big enough to fit a wine bottle inside!!

Don’t be surprised to see geckos and mice peering in and stealing snacks from within the pitcher’s mouth. They seem to have a symbiotic relationship, as they themselves sometimes find themselves on the menu, although not as often as you might think
