Splendid Pitcher Plant - Nepenthes edwardsiana - This species of tropical carnivorous plant found on Mt Kinabalu & Mt Tambuyukon in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. It produces some of the largest pitchers and the most highly developed peristome (around or about the mouth) teeth of any other pitcher plant of the Nepenthes genus & is considered the most spectacular
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.
