Carnivorous - Nepenthes (Pitcher Plant)


Pitcher plants, nephenthes, are often found in water/ bog locations. Their media must be kept moist and warm. Like most carnivorous plants, they perform best in bright light and moist conditions. Avoid wetting the foliage. An easy, carefree way to grow your carnivorous plants are in terrariums or in a water retentive material or near a humidifier. Carnivorous plants perform best with a regular supply of bugs, which are attracted to the pitcher's nectar.
