    Why do cats always refuse to drink water out of a clean bowl? Nepenthes water is always preferred. If there was a pitcher large enough this guy would drink the contents I'm sure! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Cats hate freshly drawn water. Ours only drinks water after it's been sittin in the bowl for like three days. We used to have a big goldfish bowl with a couple of goldfish in it and it would always drink out of it, but didn't harm the fish.

    My bathtub faucet leaks and that's where my cat drinks!

    I'll bet Rob is using that ampullaria vine as the coolest "fresh-cut flowers" on earth!

    Hey Tony,

    Only highland species are available on the rocks, lowlanders don't like ice much. Upper pitchers come with a twist [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Goldtrap, no. Nepenthes leaves won't grow or root in water, but they do last a long time, those leaves and pitchers are weeks old. They are offcuts when we take cuttings from our red amps that used to get thrown out but Diana likes to preserve them for a while.

    By the way, I got told off for posting a photo of old leaves and pitchers. Diana replenished the vase today and it seems to have attracted a new customer:

    Rob, there's something perverse about using red ampullaria cuttings so wantonly. People are starving for red amps in the US, you know. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    There's no 'a' in perlite.
