African pitcher plant

This forum is mostly dedicated to British wild life but it occurred to me that someone might know about African pitcher plants.  I worked for a year in Uganda and found a small pitcher growing in a hedge.  Unfortunately I didn't have a camera, but picked one and made a "drawing" of it on the computer's "Paint" programme.  It was quite small, the mouth of the pitcher was about 2" across.  The stems were threading through the hedge, and it must have been about 5 ft from the ground.


Anyone have any idea what kind it was?

    Hi there,

    Looks like a dutchman's pipe, Aristolochia sp.

    Nice drawing by the way
