    Ampullaria grow fast in their native environment, and if it's just the pitchers, it would cause little harm to the plant in the long run. If you see in the same album, they also sell Amps as a houseplant so their local culture may be respectful of the plants as well I hope!

    It would be sad if people did that here, but I'm sure the plants forgive the local townsfolk haha.

    Timmy start up your Nep collection soon! You'll see that they will do absolutely fine if grown completely without their pitchers!

    they dont destroy the plants usually, from what ive seen in a couple of videos (i dont remember where they were, they were in a totally different language anyway) they just go out and cut off various pitchers from various plants, and since ampullaria is such a strong basal and runner producer, not to mention aerial offshoots of the main stem, there is no harm done to the plant if the person is just collecting pitchers...

    I saw pics at one time, either here or some other Cp place where someone showed a bunch of small N. mirabilis pitchers stuffed with what looked like rangoon fixings (cream cheese, onions, crab, etc). there was a whole serving platter full of them. I would try it just because!

    In Sarawak, they use veitchii pitchers and fill them up with rice and sweetmeats. Yum.
