    Indeed. If this isn't a All-You-Can-Fill-Your-Pitchers-with-Buffet I don't know what is.

    Also, I have no idea how the plant can digest any of the ants above the digestive fluid since all I can see is ants above the digestive fluid.

    that was my first question/thought is whether the plant is capable of processing so much food.

    Well, bacteria could eat some of the ants inside and maybe release some of the nutrients and the pitcher wall could absorb it. But, I'd expect it not to be too much.

    Still, they're doing a great job! I found a surprising lack of them today. No wonder. EVERY time I look at a pitcher on my larger Sarracenia there is at LEAST 2 ants on it, and at most about 20.
