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 of acid and digestive enzymes in the bottom of the pitcher. Most struggle until they drown. A few manage to swim to the sides and succeed in scaling the wall into a zone of digestive glands, only to become hopelessly mired in sticky juice.

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.
