Hello guys! *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
Yesterday i was working with my Nep's. I was moving some of them to a new site and cleaning the pots of others. While i was working with my bicalcarata a pitcher fell down for the pot, and guess what, the pitcher touched my lips.

This pitcher was covered by several nectar drop and some of those nectar drops ended up in my lips. And what happened...? *I ended up tasting the nectar. WOW... *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] It was the sweetest thing i have ever tasted, sweeter than honey.
I said to myself what a happy coinsidence that this nectar has a good taste. But minutes later i started to feel that my lips were feeling like when you go to the dentist and they use anesthesia in your mouth.
This effect only lasted for several minutes, thanks to Heavens. But i am thinkig: Is this nectar narcotic? I mean, does this nectar is some kind of anesthesia used to make victimes drunk and fall down to the pitcher?
By the way, here is a picture of a pitcher of my plant. Look at the fangs. Amazing....! Don't you think?
The whitish strings you see around the mouth of the pitcher are Tillandsia recurvata seeds. I have houndreds of these tillandsias and they all desided to produce seeds at the same time. Everithing is covered by their seeds.
What happened to me was an accident, but please, do not try tasting Nep's nectar. Even though it is sweet and good tasting, the feeling of having your lips anesthesiated is not a good experience...
