what's up with the spines/hairs on the insect eating cup?

short answer: for helping the bugs climb in the pitcher and not allowing them to get out

long answer: i gotta just make a giant post of basic pitcher plant botany and evolution bc its like. the coolest. like its a leaf dedicated 100% to catching bugs in every single aspect, even down to the microscopic level. evolution is amazing and plants are amazing
