    I haven't seen a single plant of mine eat those blue bottle flies or whatever they're called other than a forked leaf sundew - it's not binata because it's got more branches than just two, but it didn't come to me labeled and it's a mutt likely. Here's a clickable pic of it in with some other stuff - it's the one in the middle of the pot with the long stalks/leaves and then the dewy part unfurling like horns:

    i9d have to say nepenthes ventrata. Its a hybrid between two of the eisiest to grow neps. and have 6 inch plus pitchers. planty large enough for a half inch fly. they do great on a sunny windowsill and a large plant can have up to 20 pitchers at one time. in my truncata i have next to my ventrata i found that it caught 6 flies in one night that i left the window open by accident.
