    Hum... I cant lick my drosera... The dew is forming just enough to be there... Its no factory...

    I think i watched a bug get drunk on my S. purpurea... It was walking down the hairs on the hood. Stopped. Step. Step. Tumble... I peed myself laughing... It was the first time i'd ever seen a pitcher plant eat a bug without me feeding it! Yea, i've got lots of fruit flies in my room, but none get eaten. They're too dumb. I dont know where they're breeding. There is about four or five of them... Thats ok, hopefully they'll make offspring in time for my Droseras new leaf. But why not my pitcherplant... they should all go suck coniine and drown while drunk... NO! They should get drunk, fall in, the cold water will sober them up, then they will be all too well aware of their sill stumble! Bwaha!!

    Reminds me of when I watched my N. rafflesiana get an insect drunk and see it fall in. I laughed too. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I reccomend drinking it as it is good for ya. But I wouldn't try it myself UNLESS someone offered me a plant if I did it. Then I would. I personaly think licking a Drosera is far more gotesque than drinkng a Nep. pitcher.

    The fluid from an UNOPENED nep pitcher has been used to treat arthritis. And the sterile fluid has the same effect as aloe on small cuts and burns.

    What is so bad about sundew mucous? [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I tried dilatato-petiolaris after that and also no taste. It's only sticky stuff!
