Found this article while looking for info on a new utric I got. Thought some of you Nepaholics might enjoy it.
Now THAT is interesting! So the termites eat the white hairs along the rim? That's crazy! I found it especially intriguing that N. albomarginata is the only plant that uses its own tissue for bait. Wow
I've grown this species for several months now and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite Neps. I really love the white rim on the pitchers and now that I know what it's for it makes N. albomarginata even more awesome (or awesomer if you want to go that far).
Thanks for posting the article BCK!
That is wild! Who'da thunk it?

Very interesting, anybody got close up of the hairs on this pitcher?
