cleavitt92 Just checked out Peter Damatos' nursery- California Carnivores up in Santa Rosa. Pictured is an amazing Nepenthes pitcher plant. The smooth edges are meant to make insects, and in the case of these huge pitchers- lizards and frogs, fall into the pitcher where they are digested by the plant. They evolved these pitchers because the bogs and marsh environments in which they live are very nutrient deficient. @cameraplants #carnivorousplant #garden #pitcherplant 9h

lostsherpa Pitcher plants are carnivorous plants that have evolved modified leaves known as a pitfall traps – a prey-trapping mechanism featuring a deep cavity filled with liquid. Foraging, flying or crawling insects such as flies are attracted to the cavity formed by the cupped leaf, often by visual lures. The rim of the pitcher is slippery, when moistened by condensation or nectar, causing insects to fall into the trap. Pitcher plants may also contain waxy scales, cuticular folds,or inward and downward pointing hairs on the inside of the pitcher to ensure that insects cannot climb out. #science #plants #botany #pitcherplant 18h

  •   snownyy Nice! Its kinda odd that mine doesnt have any stripes at all. Just a solid red peristome 18h
  •   oscareecho So pretty! 18h
  •   cameraplants @snownyy it's from the parents they chose 17h
  •   padlocktackle @snownyy have you gotten to upper pitchers yet? I've found that sometimes when hybrid lower's aren't striped but perhaps should be, that maybe when they reach uppers the stripes will appear 16h
  •   cameraplants @padlocktackle @snownyy all the lowers on this plant looked like this 11h

  •   oscareecho Nice! And this is only the beginning :p 21h
  •   ben_jamin_official @snownyy worth every cent.. (Especially when they go extinct in the wild next year) and @oscareecho I plan to have every A1 species of Nepenthes about 1/4 the way there now... Looooong way to go 2h
  •   snownyy Does a1 mean endangered or so? 2h
  •   ben_jamin_official @snownyy yes, i am collecting the most endangered (CITES appendixes1) species first then the rest of the species and eventually hope to have all (pure strain) species 8min
