    Just to clarify. Bartram's quote was in reference to Sarracenia. I found that whole passage about tasting what he was studying rather amusing.
    Pineapple: Hehe, yeah. Let me know how that goes then.

    It was in either a documentary or survival show that someone said you could drink the fluid to survive and that the insects were nothing more than extra protein

    This.

    Also, now I kind of want to take a sip of Nepenthes fluid. Even though I have now been molded to believe that it is a caustic killing soup that will lead to certain death and decay.
