This wacky carnivorous plant is dubbed 'Monkey Cups' because in the wild, monkeys are often found drinking water from the pitchers. The pitcher is actually a swelling of the mid-vein in the leaf, and produces a sweet insect-attracting nectar. The sticky inner walls of the pitcher traps the insects in the digestive fluid at the bottom of the pitcher. The plant absorbs nutrients from this "soup", nom nom.
Note: there should always be water in the bottom of the pitchers or they will shrivel. We empty the water out the cups for transportation. Please fill again when you receive your plant.
