Aristolochia debilis (note spelling) is not a carnivorous plants, but
it may catch insects for pollination, as many (all?) other
Aristolochia do. I heard about this species from the Botanic Garden
here, and I would not be surprised if they have this species to. I
think it originates from China. I will take a look and contact you in
private. (I hope you are not confusing with Nepenthes
aristolochioides which, of coarse, is carnivorous.)

Kind regards,
