Nepenthes alata, Nepenthes graciliflora
Family: Nepenthaceae
Winged Nepenthes, Pitcher Plant
Origin: Philippines
Vine or creeperSmall shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterUnusual color

Carnivorous climbing vine. Passive pitfall traps produced at the tips of the leaves trap and digest small insects.

In 2013, Nepenthes alata was redelimited by Martin Cheek and Matthew Jebb to encompass only those populations from northern and central Luzon with conspicuously hairy pitchers (a taxon known in horticultural circles as the "hairy N. alata") Under this interpretation, the more southerly plants previously referred to this species actually represent the newly resurrected N. graciliflora (the "typical N. alata" of horticulture)
