Pitcher plants are insectivorous in nature. Here the leaf lamina is modified into a pitcher like structure the leaf apex is modified into the lid of the pitcher. The colourful lid is lined with a ring of nectar glands. The upper region of the pitcher bears many digestive glands followed by a slippery surface. Its bottom contains acidic fluid. Insects trapped by the pitcher are digested by the enzymes secreted by the glands and absorbed by the pitcher. Pitcher plant available in India is Nepethes khasiana.
