    Sometimes if a pitcher is damaged, it will drain.

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -

    Alvin,

    N. inermis
    N. ampullaria
    N. eymae upper pitchers
    N. jacquelineae (to a degree)

    Are easily filled with above water. My N. inermis is always topped off with water from the sprinklers yet digests prey very easily.

    Purps need water in their pitchers before they can make digestive fluid. As for the floating thing, don't worry, the bug will sink eventually and be digested. The empty exoskeleton will remain, since the digestive fluid simply eats away at the bug's insides, not it's outer remains.
