    Actually, I do not think it is a flower ~~ :p
    I have seen this plant can lure flys to fall on it and flys can not escape and fall into it. Finally those flys becomes a delicious big dinner of the plant~~
    I did see a fly fall into its "pocket" and it has already dead~~but when i took it , the pic is very blurred~~:( ~~~my poor DC~
