    i've gotten into the habit of licking the undersides of my sarracenia lids. i encourage it. its delicious. and it may just be my imagination, but i think it makes my tongue go delightfully numb.

    whats in this stuff, aside from sugars and whatnot
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    I've done it with Nepenthes and Heliamphora. Nepenthes taste much better (sweet). These are also grown in a terrarium, so I know no fly tasted the nectar before I did
