    good call mobile, spot on

    I've been following your discussion on Heliamphora spec. Bonnetia forest (aff. huberi), interesting....
    I'm suppose to receive H. uncinata any day now... :-)

    Amazing. That's such an unusual adaptation. Does it seem to attract more insects? Are the glandular patches sticky? Maybe it's an adaptation to increase its insect catch by acting as flypaper in addition to being a pitfall trap.

    Ahhhh ummmm not too many insects in the grow rack to begin with Brokken, so cant really answer that.
    The nectar is naturally sticky somewhat, but no where close to Drosera sticky... I dont think it is by design a secondary trapping function.

    But then I havent stuck my finger in these secondary glands..... only tasted the primary

    I would think the internal nectar patches are more efficient at encouraging insects into the pitcher than the nectar 'spots' that form on the outside of some Heliamphora, such as H. heterodoxa x ionasii.

    Not the best picture, but they can be seen on the back right pitcher and get bigger near the top:

    I agree with mobile....

    Maybe the external is to attract crawling insects up to the entrance while the internal is entice insects on down the path of no return

    BTW, an early Fernando in-situ pic:

    Appears to be the same species or very close to it.
    I wish the image quality was a little better..

    How does it smell? Wondering after smelling the U. alpinia flowers. Smell might have a large component in the type of insects the plants are attracting.

    and as always. awesome pics people

    Reminds me a little of Bill's 'H. tatei var. neblinae Red waxy form': http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index...dpost&p=262940
