It’s a marvellous thing seeing the efficiency with which my pitcher plant can trap and kill food when simply left to its own devices. Bugs are attracted to the nectar, clamber into the traps and become nom noms for the plant. What’s more, it really loves the New Zealand climate combined with being parked next to an open bathroom window. Pitcher plants make a terrific addition to the household for natural pest control. Quite pretty to boot.
