    Nepenthes nectar

    Haha,

    I'm sure people have tasted this stuff... I just did a few minutes ago. My biggest N. ventricosa 'red' pitcher (like 1.5 inches lol) had almost dripping with nectar around the peristome and there have been no insects around so well...

    That stuff is sweet!

    Just thought I'd share :P.

    yeah, i do it!

    and the f;avor varries species to species...my ventricosa is the sweetest, my copelandii is almost sour! and my big ol' burkeii tastes like cocnut syrup (if you have ever had it)...strange...although it could just be the narcotics supposedly in them...

    Ventricosa should be a skittles flavor.
    I haven't tried it yet, but mabye I can try my Nepenthes "Gentle" some time.
    Sabre looks good too though.
    It is actually a very interesting idea, mabye I should start collecting necter from Nepenthes, and serve it to my freinds to see what they think, or freeze it and have a popsicle...

    Each day gather a drop from each and have it drop into the ice cube trays and put a tooth pick in and freeze it!

    You never know, you may start to get drunk if you drink it in larger quantities. Maybe Nepenthes nector will become the next big thing after alcoholic beverages.
