INFO : Carnivorous plants !!! Amazing Monster Plant (Pokok makan daging)

Periuk Kera 
The plant so called 'pitcher plant' or 'monkey cup' has grown and breed in Malaysia healthily, her botanic scientific name is Nepenthes spp. 
This plant can grown well on acidic soil, hot, humid, less nitrogen and dry low land environment. The name "monkey cups" refers to the fact that monkeys drink rainwater from these plants.

The 'cup' act like a trap which contains a fluid (kinda syrup) of the plants self production, used to drown the prey. The fluid contains very elastic bio-polymer that may be crucial to the retention of insects within the traps. 

Besides insects, prey could be a larger species such as rats and lizards or even small birds... she really Monster
