Pitcher Plant

pitcher-plant-225x300The pitcher plant is a native American and it is from these people that we have learned to use it.  It is diuretic, astringent, and a tonic, especially for the whole digestive system.  Where appetite is lacking (as in case of illness or age), it is a stimulant to the appetite.  Another use was as a remedy for smallpox, either to ward it off or to treat it, once acquired.  The pitcher plant grows in swampy, damp grounds throughout North America.  Just because you don’t live near a swamp doesn’t mean you can’t have one.  It actually makes a very easy to care for and unusual house plant.  Just remember, it likes water.  Oh, and it feeds itself.  Pitcher plant is an insect eater.
