    I'll be the first entry. My female N. Tenuis. The pitcher that I'm entering is the biggest and nicest one.

    I noticed this morning that the newest pitcher on my N. jamban was mostly done opening and looked quite colorful, so ...


    When I finished taking a few pics, I'd heard that the fluid in these pitchers can be quite thick so I stuck my finger in to see. When I pulled it up, there was a stream of slime ~1/8" across. When I retrieved my camera and did it again, the strand was much thinner (figures ). Once done snapping the pic, I pulled my finger out of the 40 gallon tank and the strand kept stretching but wouldn't break. It stretched at least two feet!.
    All the best,
    Ron

    Awesome Ron! Can't wait til I have a jamban with pitchers that size!

    I remember when I spilled my N. inermis climbing vines pitchers. A looong strand of pitcher snot with half digested cricket exoskeletons all over me stretching to the floor in one big strand!
