Pitcher Plant - Nepenthes - "Monkey Cup"

Pitcher Plant. Nepenthes. Also locally known as "Monkey Cup".

 

Nepenthes are herbaceous non-woody plants which generally grow as long twining vines with pitchers. The pitchers are actually highly specialized leaves that act as passive pitfall traps (for little insects).
