Vine mimics tree's leaves

Very interesting, I didn't know plants could do that.


I just read about it.. it's a vine that when it starts climbing up a tree, puts out leaves that look like the tree's leaves. Wouldn't it be neat if we could put it on a Nep vine and get pitchers :-D

That is something to consider, although I don't think the pitchers would be functional. At the very least, it would be interesting to make it imitate Nepenthes leaves and pass it off as a rare Nepenthes species.
It would indeed be interesting to get it to mimic an Nepenthes. But passing it off as something it's not brings words other than interesting to mind.
WOW thanks for the article link!
