Item #331362 | Published 7/21/08
Nepenthes burkei is a lowland tropical pitcher plant native to the Philippines. The nectar-producing ‘pitchers’ on this rare carnivorous vine are actually specialized leaves that lure, trap, and digest insects. In this way, the plant is able to obtain the nutrients lacking in the infertile soil in which it grows.
