    this one kid at my school thinks i have a morbid fascination with the torturing of god's creatures(i go to a catholic high school). then i showed him a picture of a Nepenthes one day (and he didnt know it was a carnivorous plant) and he wanted one. i told him what it was and how they killed the bugs and he just looked at me, said "may god have mercy on your morbid soul" and walked away. he kinda freaked me out....... then my girlfriend saw the picture of the "bunny flower" aka U. sandersonii and she thought that i made it. and then was even more surprised when she saw it and how small it was!!! when i first started this craze all i had was a S. 'Judith Hindle' and then D. adalae. my dad kept telling me that they wouldnt live and was wasting my money. i proved HIM wrong though!!

    You should of went on with the charade, Alex!

    Offer him a cutting, let him develop an appreciation for the plant, tell him the pitchers are just the plant's water reserves and see how long it takes him to figure it out.

    Most people I talk to are also facinated. I have yet to run into someone who has talked about how creepy it is (except for the casual joke).

    yeah, and sometimes I'm even somewhat reluctant to tell people because I'm afraid that they are going to make a big deal about it.

    i guess the point that YOU(someitmes) feed them and they dont catch them on their own. if you grow them outside....thats a different story. i just found a spider in my house and i put it on my N. sanguinea. it made a dash for the nearest nectar source(thirsty?) and kept drinking. after about 6 stops it was finally at the persimtone where it started to look drunk. it finally fell into the pitcher...all i ever did was put the spider on the plant. amazing how nature is . i thought it was VERY cool how the plant did it all by its self!
