    Mietek, those are the male flowers of Nepenthes tobaica, a species named after Sumatra's Lake Toba. Female flowers are actually rare in Nepenthes.

    I love pitcher plants, they are just awesome. They are kinda hard to grow though.

    hard? i can grow them in temperatures from 40 odd degs C in the kitchen right down to -5 degs C outside. they just need to be topped up with water constantly. Mine hardly ever goes withought water, and its doing great! Thats the Sarracenia by the way, not Nepenthes.
