Default Pitcher plant

The trapping mechanism of the carnivorous pitcher plant - insects get lured into the pit and after falling in, they cannot climb out, get stuck to the sticky secretion inside and gradually get digested. Saw the plant in a protected environment with supportive ropes for the vine to catch on and flourish.
