These are some of the BIGGEST carnivorous varieties in cultivation. Native to boggy climates, these usually are growing in nutrient deficient waters and get their essential nutrients and minerals from digesting insects. Sometimes these can usually sustain themselves off of just a single a insect per month! Once one of the 'mouths' has fed enough, they will die off which prompts the plant to regrow a new one to replace it. Like most carnivorous species, Nepenthes will go dormant in the winter. This means it may loose it's pitchers or some of it's foliage until it will completely regrow in the spring and summer!

Care:

Carnivorous plants do best when given a TON of light. They can handle some pretty intense direct sun! Typically this is because of their bog habitat. They also need to stay consistently moist in the soil. You can water heavily when the surface of the soil starts to feel dry or even keep the plant in a saucer of water to ensure it does not dry out. If you choose to re-pot, do NOT use regular potting soil. Carnivorous plants need something that is going to be pretty void of nutrients as they get everything from the insects they eat. When re-potting, we recommend using 100% sphagnum moss or a soil mixture labeled specifically for carnivorous plants.
