Another special characteristic of the Raffles Pitcher Plant is that the pitchers can have different shapes!

Leaves near the base of the plant produce fat U-shaped pitchers. The upper leaves produce slim V-shaped pitchers.

(Lower pitchers attract crawling insects; upper pitchers attract both crawling and flying insects.)
