Pitcher Plant

Nepenthes, also known as pitcher plants or monkey cups, is a genus of tropical carnivorous plants native to The Seychelles, Indochina, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Caledonia, New Zealand, and Indonesia. Many carnivorous plants have evolved in nutrient-poor soils, and the pitcher plant is no exception. It uses its carnivorous pitcher cups to catch nutrients that would be otherwise unavailable from the surrounding soil.

But don’t stress - there’s no need to feed your pitcher plant! This generally easy-going plant is self-sufficient. Just remember to keep the light bright and the humidity high for it to thrive.

PLANT ORIGINS

The Seychelles through Indonesia to New Caledonia

The Plant Care

Light

Bright, indirect light to some sun. Increase humidity with increased light.

Water

Keep soil perpetually moist, but not sopping wet. Use filtered or distilled water for optimal health. Keep humidity higher than 50% for optimal health.

Extra Love

Do not feed the pitcher plant! It needs room in the pitcher to eat bad vibes.
