    I've seen my Ventrata (ventricosa x alata) and Wiglyana/Morganiana (similar to the Coccinea hybrid) drooling. In the very hottest part of summer (late August) my bicalcarata was also making a wet and somewhat whitish "snot" on the peristome which dripped inwards towards the fluid. It's almost gross to have plants that produce their own phlem! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Having N. Truncata and N. Ventricosa, droplets of nectar always form on the rim and gradually sliding down the pitchers.
