....pitchers (what else?)
Yesteday, I witnessed for the first time, ants crawling up and into my pitchers. The walked up the plant quite quickly, but once they got inside, it seemed like they got lethargic all of the sudden. I vaguely remember something about hairs making it difficult for insects to get out...but there are no such hairs visible on my plants. I wonder why the ants behaved the way they did. Can someone explain the phenomenon to this newbie?
