LOVE 
Nepenthes are large climbing carnivorous plants with more than 200 known species. They grow large in sizes, and hang as vines with large pitchers. 

Nepenthes have pitfall traps that are filled with digestive juices. The pitfall traps form from a leaf, and can take months to mature. Even though the trap doesn’t move to capture the prey, it’s large and many various insects, such as ants and wasps, become victims of this plant.

The plant is producing nectar, which lures insects to the plant. After trying some nectar, many insects move up to the pitcher and then fall in the trap.

If you are growing the plant where it cannot catch insects for long periods, you can add an occasional small insect such as a fly, a cockroach or a few very small insects to mature pitchers.
