The flowers of the plant remind me of the play "Little Shop of Horrors" and its star Audrey, Jr. which was a plant that devoured humans. These flowers have a smelly, sticky throat that attracts insects which end up part of the plant's dinner.

    I think the pitcher plant is different. It is classified as a poisonous meat eating plant, and it doesn't have the giant pistil that the Jack on the Pulpit has in it. But what do I know?! They could be cousins. LOL
