Fanged Pitcher Plant
Photograph - Photograph
Fanged pitcher plant (Nepenthes bicalcarata). This is a carnivorous plant, using scent, nectar and colour to attract insects. When insects fall into the liquid at the bottom of the trap (pitcher) they are digested by digestive enzymes. This provides the plant with nutrients, such as phosphorous and nitrogen. Pitcher plants are typically found in nutrient-poor habitats, such as swamps. This pitcher plant is endemic to the island of Borneo, and is named for the thorns (not seen) overhanging each pitcher. Photographed in Gunung Mulu National Park, in Sarawak, the Malaysian part of Borneo.
