Pitcher plants are carnivorous plants which trap animals as food. They have modified leaves known as pitfall traps, a prey-trapping mechanism featuring a deep cavity filled with digestive fluid liquid. It is a strong climber that quickly enters the vining stage. N. burbidgeae is endemic to the area of Mount Kinabalu.
