Nepenthes pitcher plants are carnivorous plants that use their specialized, pitcher shaped, leaves to capture and digest prey. The traps are passive and the lids remain open to lure prey in with its nectar glands under the lid. The plant’s lip (called a peristome) gives insects and other critters a precarious and slippery place to sit while eating nectar. This can lead to insects falling inside to the plants fluids at the bottom of the pitcher where it is digested.
Nepenthes bicalcarata is a very tolerant lowland Nepenthes pitcher plant suited for growing in a bright windowsill or under grow lights. This pitcher is exceptional because of its gorgeous fangs that sometimes drip nectar. This plant will have a leaf span of roughly 9.8 inches or around 25cm.
