Sighted this carnivorous climbing plant on the mountainside of mt. Hamiguitan and endemic only to that mountain. The pitchers grow on a tendril that extends on the tip to the midrib of the leaf. Insects were attracted by its nectar odor and trapped them inside the pitcher. The poor captives will then be digested with digestive acid produced by the plant. Pitcher plants were also known as “monkey cups” for monkeys have been seen drinking rainwater from these plants.
