    I think it might just be a difference in species in some cases. I heard somewhere (I think in Stewart McPherson's book) that some pitchers have thicker fluid. Nepenthes Inermis can have super sticky, thick fluid in the pitcher, because sometimes bird poop is collected in the pitcher.

    Well, the competition is definitely rough, but I've been waiting for over a month to dig this plant out of it's regular home for a few pics (major tangles!!)

    U. asplundii, Chiwinda Ecuador (short lobe clone)

    There's approximately 50 stalks in there. I counted multiple times, getting counts from 48 to 56. Wow - that cinderblock sure doesn't do the plant justice ... ... but there's no way I can dig that thing out again ...

    Views of flowers...

    All the best,
    Ron
