    Well, the topic says it all. Anyone else getting condensation inside the hoods of their cobra lilies? I can see the beads of moisture through the "windows."

    A side note. A wandering ant practically threw itself into this plant the other day--it seemed quite deliriously happy, marching right down the tube. I wonder if the local insects in the plant's native habitat are more wary--I would expect some resistance to the plant's nectary badness would develop after a few thousand years/generations.

    Are you sure it's condensation and not nectar? I don't know diddley about cobra lilies, but I have nectar on the hoods of my S. catsbaei.

    It's been cold and dark lately--I'll check to see if the lack of light has reduced the fluid in the hoods.

    I don't know if its condensation or not, but i notice beads of water inside the pitcher, near the light windows.

    But then, I notice this "condensation" on unopened nep pitchers too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
