    I have had the fluid from unopened Nepenthes pitchers (it's fairly sterile at that point) in the Philippines years back; and drinking it is a fairly common practice to those living near or simply hiking around in the mountains.

    Funky tasting, like the water remaining from cooking asparagus, but "doable" . . .

    Most pitchers have drinkable fluid - it's the stuff that gets to growing in the fluid once the pitchers open that's a problem. Did you know that a number of the indigenous peoples is the range of N. ampullaria use amp pitchers to prepare rice?

    Are you talking bout when that British guy puts his finger along the red part of the pitcher and licks off the nectar? That plant is called S. flava. Most Sarracenia have that nectar.

    Sure, it's edible. But you won't get much out of it. It's not even that sweet.

    most nectar is very sweet. The pitcher fluid (of unopend pitchers) isnt really that bad IMO. I drink it.
