young pitcher, nepenthes

A nepenthes at Kipandi Butterfly Park. This one hasn't had its first meal of insect.

A young pitcher, probably a lower pitcher rafflesiana species which is characteristically round and squat, with distinct hairy ‘winged’ fringe. The peristome and lid are not yet formed. This one hasn’t had its first meal of insect! Photographed in the garden next to the office / canteen at Kipandi Butterfly Park.
