20: -Native to the southeastern United States, especially the bogs of North Carolina. -Grows best in direct sunlight in a wet, temperate environment. Soil is typically saturated with water. -This can be considered heterotrophic because it traps insects, such as flies, inside its "pitcher" and consumes them.

It requires a warm, temperate climate to survive, and its soil needs to be kept moist at all times. The air around it should be relatively humid. - An epiphyte is a plant that grows attached to other plants. They have aerial roots that are used to anchor them to the plants.
