    Found it at the grocery store today. Most unusual looking plant and I had to have one. Haven't got a clue how to care for it. Am going now to google it. Wish me luck. Will take a pic when I can find my camera.

    Finally found my camera. Is this not a cool plant? I have decided to put in front of my patio doors that face to the south but are also facing into the wooded hillside behind my house. Diffused light all day. Hope it works. They came with fluid in the pots so I am not adding any. Just going to water 2x a week and see how it goes :)

    The most common name for it is "The Pitcher Plant". My granmother had one for a few years...keep water in the pitchers too...they collect rain and dew if outside, but sometimes need a little extra.

    Very lovely!
