Nice moon vine! I love the big white bloom at night. And got slight fragrance too if I remember correctly

Mine is a Taiwanese cultivar, different from the ones sold at markets & supermarkets which are imported from Malaysia.

The same fruit placed beside glass bottle for size reference (same height but fatter than glass bottle):

Wisteria,

You are motivating me to get my own collection of carnivorous plants with all those lovely pictures. I am going to buy 2 sundews from your next batch.

How effective are these plants in reducing insect population in your garden?

Hi Preeti
The carnivorous plants don't really reduce the insect population in the outdoor garden. Only a small population of ants will be diverted to the nepenthes. Many pitchers on my plants actually don't have any insect in them. The sundews can only trap those tiny flying insects that fly up close.

Foliage eating insects (eg. beetles, grasshoppers, caterpillars) will eat the leaves, growing tip & pitcher buds of nepenthes if they can't find food elsewhere. Caterpillars that drop into a nepenthes pitcher can eat their way out. Beetles and moth caterpillars will also eat sundews leaves instead of getting trapped.
