Pitcher plants are absolutely fascinating.  Growing in bogs where the soil is often poor in nutrients, they manage to be quite exotic.  They’re also carnivorous: they lure their pray with the promise of nectar and then trap the insects inside their long tube-like necks, also know as pitfall traps.  What a crazy plant!
