    Nepenthes or not?

    I was browsing Google images, looking at CP pics, and I happened upon this. The photographer says it'd a CP, but I'm thinking its some type of arum. If it is a carnivore I want one!

    I think it looks like an orchid. based on all I have seen so far...I have never ever seen a carnivorous plant like that. If indeed that is one CP, then that is a breakthrough that might be the cornerstone of a new genus and showcase of evolution.

    It's some type of Aristolochia. Commonly mistaken for a cp, but it's not.

    That's not an orchid. Like Phission said, it's an Aristolochia.

    are these the flowers that trap insects for a few days, get them covered in pollen, then release them...and then re-trap the insects in a new flower, to pollinate it?
