    Thanks! Though admittedly the Spathulata x Rob was always toothy ;P

    In other news I count 5 S. Jonesii germinations. Woo!

    The great ritual suicide of the ants seems to have come to a close, they have dissapeared as quickly and mysteriously as they came, leaving nothing but well fed plants and corpses in their wakes.

    Seriously like, hundreds and hundreds of corpses. There must be at least 200 in my ventricosa "Red" alone. Here are some pictures of everyone's stuffed bellies! (Plainly visible by the very dark areas near the bottom of the pitchers.)

    sibuyanesis

    ventricosa "Black"

    ventricosa "Red"


    These seem to be the only plants that the phantom ants were attracted to. So to compensate I gave all my other Nepenthes (And a few of the larger Drosera) cut up meal worms. Bon appetit.

    Also, sibuyanesis made a cute pitcher:

    I tried to get a picture of inside of ventricosa "Red" but I really could not get any good angle to take a picture. But you guys will have to take my word for the black stew that is in there right now, nothing but a pitch black soup of dead ants. Im still baffled by where the heck they came from.

    Ants apparently can cling to the sides of pitchers.

    Picked up a deathcube VFT from Lowes yesterday, this thing is seriously light starved. Im hoping I can rehabilitate it.



    Mutated growth from growing up against the sides of the cube:

    I havent given N. "Red Leopard" much love in this thread, even though I think its one of my nicest looking plants! So here it is. This is my first and only plant Ive grown from a cutting.





    Tendrils galore!


    My N. burkei only grows pitchers in this corner of the pot.
