    Lunch!

    This pitcher is on a plant that is outdoors, and it attracts flies and gnats. Gnats go in, and most get stuck on the wall of the pitcher, but the flies stay on the lid and don't go into the pitcher. Lately I've also seen ants walking on the peristome, and they don't fall in.

    That's so cool. Now do the bodies fall into the trap and do you have to empty it every so often to stop rot?

    Thats a cool looking nep, which species/hybrid is it?

    My neps never seem to attract flies, only ants:
