Hi Suzy,
I was telling a puzzle friend in Fl. the conservatory had a few hanging ripe fruit trays for the butterflies, but I never saw any flying insects, none. Either this plant or something was doing a good job :) It sure is unique looking! Have a good week . .

Pitcher plants are very attractive and do a fine job of catching insects. A nice addition to the Butterfly House. :)

They are considered carnivorous, they have some sweet substance which attracts unfortunate insects which fall in the "pitcher" where they drown and get "absorbed" by the host.

G’evening Linda,
Yeah, definitely not a cocoon :) Another puzzle friend said it’s a Carnivorous Pitcher plant, meaning it’s most likely not meant for the butterflies, but for the ants, flies and gnats that might be attracted to the very ripe, fruit trays, for the butterflies. That’s our best guess :) This summer I’d like to buy a hanging fruit tray to put on a shepherd’s pole in my garden . . I need something to attract more butterflies :) I’m happy you worked the puzzle!

Tea.. It looks very fitting to be in a Butterfly house for the shape of it. It is not a cocoon.
Very unusual to be considered a flower. Leave it to you to find it and make it into a puzzle. Great shot. Thank you for posting it. Linda

Hello Donna . . how are you? Thanks for working the puzzle!

@JillianB
I thought about something today, in a few areas around the butterfly house there were hanging flat trays of sliced (very ripe) fruit. And not one sign of flies, gnats or ants . . How were they keeping it ‘bug free’? Jerry probably knows😉. I don’t think it’s the one Pitcher plant, but maybe! Kinda interesting . .

What Jill said.😊 tfp

JillianB

Yes Tea I did and I have seen them before. This particular one only eats small insects so I guess that means the butterflies are safe, however I agree with you it does seem strange in a conservatory

@JillianB
Thank you Lady Jillian! Did you read what Jerry called it? Now I’m kind of curious why it’s in the conservatory. Interesting :)

JillianB

Such a fascinating plant, great photo Tea. Thank you

Dramatic looking flower but having seen Jerry's identification no wonder! Thanks Tea.

. . . The St. Louis Zoo (and it’s butterflies) is already something I’m looking forward to doing the next time😃. Thank you for working the puzzle.

@Teagardener It is amazing, indeed. There is another butterfly house on the grounds of the Saint Louis Zoo as part of its Insectarium.

Hi Jerry, yes I did, I stayed in Chesterfield and enjoyed seeing the butterflies on my way home Saturday morning. I’ve never seen anything like this, it was an amazing place to visit!!

jerrys

@Teagardener Ah, one of the carnivorous pitcher plant species beautifully shot. Did you visit our fair city recently?
