Pitcher Plant

11 May 2009

Borneo Island

The British tracking school had us traipsing through miles of jungle, swamps and areas that looked similar to parts of Afghanistan.  Along the way were many special plants and creatures.  In Florida, it was always special to see pitcher plants.  But here in Borneo, we passed by countless thousands.  In Florida, the pitcher plants I have seen all grow from the ground, while here in Borneo the pitcher plants I have seen grow from vines.  This one is on the ground, but appeared to have fallen off a vine from overhead.
