    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 an old mirror of the Wikipedia article on Nepenthes albomarginata. Check it out, there's an article on every known species.

    You can edit the article and add information too!
