nepenthes Lantern red pitcher plant and leaf

Nepenthes 'Lantern' IMG 5715 - This plant, commonly known as a 'Pitcher Plant', owes its survival to insects that fall into its cylindrical pitchers and drown in the water they invariably contain. The resultant stew provides the essential nutrients that this climbing insect eating carnivorous plant requires to maintain its growth and good health.
