    pervillei secretions?

    One morning after getting up and looking at my nepenthes, I noticed that my pervillei had these little pinprick sized dew drops on it, but it wasn't dew. None of the other plants had any sort of water on them so it wasn't dew or rain spray or anything... is this some well documented feature that I don't know about or something? Here's pics (cuz it did happen )

    Liz is right, we wont know for sure until you do a taste test. If you haven't tasted your neps then you don't love them!

    I have never heard of anything like that, but it certainly does look like some sort of secretion, it looks awful uniform. Though you would think there would be some kind of visible gland that would accompany them.

    Nope, not gonna taste any plant that cost more than $15 because that's just...well, I could get a vastly more delicious Ahi steak for money like that

    Yeah that's why I was wondering because it looks too uniform to be spray of any kind.

    Yeah, nectar is good. I remember one time my mouth went numb for a while when I tried some nectar from my truncata.

    I've noticed a few of these (much less than your pics) on my N. aristolochioides.
    All the best,
