Nepenthes

Nepenthes or tropical pitcherplants. These pitcherplants grow in the tropical forests of Southeast Asia and Australia.
They like humid conditions. They're seperated in 3 groups , the highland species who like
normal temperatures during the day and cool temperatures during the night.( montane climate )
The lowland species like hot temperatures during the day and warm during the night, the third group are species between these two groups.
They produce beautiful pitchers at the end of their leaves. The petioles forms a tendril at the end ,many species use these tendrils so they can grip branches and the plants can climb in the trees.The tendril forms a pitcher with dangerous fluid for insects and sometimes even small rodents.
The pitcher forms a lid with sweet nectar that attracts many insects. The entrance of the pitcher
is very slippery and many insects will end in the deadly pitcher and they will also drown in the fluid.
