    Vine mimics tree's leaves

    http://news.sciencemag.org/biology/2...scovered-chile

    I just read about it.. it's a vine that when it starts climbing up a tree, puts out leaves that look like the tree's leaves. Wouldn't it be neat if we could put it on a Nep vine and get pitchers

    Very interesting, I didn't know plants could do that.

    That is something to consider, although I don't think the pitchers would be functional. At the very least, it would be interesting to make it imitate Nepenthes leaves and pass it off as a rare Nepenthes species.

    It would indeed be interesting to get it to mimic an Nepenthes. But passing it off as something it's not brings words other than interesting to mind.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
