The pitcher plant is the general name for all species of the genus Pitcher. A tropical insectivorous plant, native mainly to the tropics of the Old World. It has a unique nutrient-absorbing organ-the insect cage, the worm cage is cylindrical, the lower half is slightly expanded, the cage has a lid on the mouth, because of its shape like a pig cage. The tail of the tendril is enlarged and unrolled to form a bottle, which can eat insects.
