Time for another weird and beautiful plant post. Pitcher plants are perhaps one of the most bizarre plants out there. Pitcher plants tend to live in places where the soil is very low in nutrients, and so have evolved a novel way to obtain their necessary nutrients. They use their modified cupped leaves to trap insects, and once inside, digestive juices break down the prey into the nutrients that the plant needs. My pitcher plant is based off of the Nepenthes genus, but isn't species specific.
