    Nepenthes under blacklights

    I recently read an article about nepenthes pitchers glowing under UV light, which could be another method of trapping. I have a spare UVB bulb so I thought I would try it out and the effects were incredible, honestly these crappy photos do not do it justice. If you have a UV light I highly suggest you try this.

    Well shucks, looks like I can't do that either since your mother is way above that limit

    @richjam, I highly suggest you try it.
