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.
