NEPENTHES

P. This is the curious pitcher plant, having hollow jug-like receptacles, with lids complete, in which is a liquid or nectar which attracts and traps insects. It may, therefore, be termed an insectivorous plant. Not a subject for general cultivation. It requires a mixture of sphagnum moss, sandy peat, sand charcoal and fibrous peat to succeed in pots, or preferably baskets, a hot, moist atmosphere and a daily syringing.
