beckybrinkman: “ Nepenthes adnata is a tropical pitcher plant endemic to Sumatra where it grows on mossy sandstone cliff faces above the Tjampo River. Insects seeking nectar from glands below the pitcher’s rim lose their footing and fall into a pool.
I DO NOT LIKE HUMANS MAKING THESE! So, as you can see these pitfall traps filled with digestive acids & enzymes, are being hybridized into some ridiculously huge pitchers capable of digesting mammals & birds. (notice the mans hand holding the tendril)
Nepenthes Ampullaria is a vegetarian carnivorous plant. Lidless bowls get most of the nutrition from falling debris. They also send out basal rosettes to give the impression of a sea of pitchers without leaves.
