    Drooling Ventricosa

    Just had to take a few photos of this ventricosa today. It's making so much nectar that it's just drooling. Ventricosa, where are your manners?!? gawd... must be all the gnats flying around.









    Today I feel I have gained +1 Nepenthes experience point, as I tasted Nepenthes nectar for the first time. Its sweet with a slight hint of burning.

    I hate it when they do that. The pitcher then gets stuck to other things around it or I grab it without realizing and then my fingers are sticky! Can't they just close their big mouths?

    I can't wait for the day when my dog runs in to greet me with one stuck to the side of him.

    I wonder if their excessive nectar is part of their design where they can attract crawling insects up to the pitcher entrance.

    They don't have "ladders" so it kinda makes sense.

    Sticky icky icky, oooh wee. Hehe, very nice Ventricosa Nathan. Ventricosas are under-appreciated but it looks like you take good care of yours . I really like that pot in the picture too .
