Pitcher plants and hummingbirds

jay733August 11, 2010

I'm planning on placing a hanging basket pitcher plant about 3-4 yards from the hummingbird feeders. I don't want the plant to eat the hummingbird though. Is it safe to put it this close to the feeders or should I place farther or completely different area?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'd keep it away from the feeder(s). IF the pitchers are large enough to swallow the birds. The hummer should be able to get out I would think if trapped. They are really smart. I love hummers!
