Pitcher Plant

About Me

Native to the United States! My cup shaped leaves set me apart from any other plant at the party. I am a carnivorous plant, meaning I prefer to get my nutrients from insects rather than the soil itself. The best placement for me is indoors as I can be sensitive to dramatic shifts in temperature, as well as frost.
