    Most Neps do, and I think more Sarrs than just S. flava have it too though I may be mistaken.

    N.Infundibuliformis is quite expensive. I have seen the lowest priced at around &#3690.00. But they can go much higher! Yes, you can see the intoxicating effect of the nectar take palce on the insects that drink ENOUGH of it. You may see them walking in circles or even fall down and have difficuly getting back up. But they are still being lured by the pitcher mouth's nectar and will eventually and easily fall in. Havron, Almost ALL Nepenthes have intoxacating effects on prey so N.Inermis porbably does also. Yes Pyro, I made a typing error in my post about the Flava and coniine. It was supposed to be but espically in Flava. So yes all other Sarracenia have the drug coniine in them. That was a typo on me! Sorry bout that! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    NepG,

    I didn't mean it as a critique I was just mentioning what I thought I had heard. Sorry if it sounded bad, I really didn't mean it to be.

    That sounds funny. I would love to see an insect get drunk and fall over on its side [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Has anyone licked/taste their plants? I wonder what effect it would have. Probably not much since humans are so big huh? I've licked my D. capensis, but only to see if the dew was sweet or not. And yes, I made sure the one I licked had no bugs on it [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    if you know anything about me, you know I tried it myself. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    unfortunately, it had no taste (although the tentacles feel strange on your tongue!)
    nor did D. 'Marston Dragon', or spatulata
