    N. fusca "Flared Peristome" nectar pigment

    Never would have figured this plant would produce nectar that looks identical to N. sanguinea nectar...
    only the nextar on the peristome has pigment, the rest is clear, normal nectar but ill post pics of that too haha... its a down right drooler.

    Yah, I noticed that too. It pools in the bottom curve of the peristome for me. I wonder if pigmented nectar has any appreciable differences in flavor to colorless nectar. I haven't ventured to try it yet.

    Yeah, I've been a bit leary of trying nectar ever since an experience with my N. Truncata. My whole mouth was numb for a few minutes. Don't let that stop you though.
