Home > Tropical Plants > Nepenthes: Asian Pitcher
Nepenthes, commonly referred to as tropical Asian pitcher plants, produce pitchers very uniquely. The plant produces normal looking leaves, but at the tip of each leaf is where a pitcher forms. A tendril will develop at the tip of the leaf and, as the leaf matures, the tendril will lengthen and eventually develop into a fully mature pitcher. Each pitcher also produces nectar along the rim (peristome) to attract insects. When an insect falls in, it drowns in the naturally produced fluids that contain digestive enzymes.
