Yes, this plant is a bit rare. And indeed can not grow in the city. This plant grows in mountainous areas or forests. It grows in Southeast Asia.

Wow, it's also great where you have ornamental plants that can catch flies. If only I could see a picture of the plant that can catch flies.

Yes, this is a rare and unique plant, friend. This plant can eat insects too. I used to see her once in the forest near my grandmother's village

Those are grown as houseplants here. They won't survive in the wild. It gets too cold here for them to live outside.
