Tropical Pitcher Plants (Nepenthes) are primarily native to Southeast Asia. There are roughly 180 species, with many recently discovered in the 20th century. These fascinating carnivorous plants have evolved a way to lure, capture and digest prey. They grow anywhere from hot, sticky jungles to cool montane forests high above the clouds. Though Nepenthes are thought to be difficult to grow, this is far from the truth. Most plants adapt to cultivation quite well and the hobby is growing quickly. In fact, most tropical pitcher plants species and hybrids will thrive between 60-85 degrees Fahrenheit. Check out our Nepenthes care tips here.
