    I recently took this closeup shot of the underside of the
    operculum of an upper N. lowii pitcher, and thought
    that it might interest those who have not seen such a thing
    in person. This variety of the species is from G. Mulu, BTW.

    The thick, white exudate for which this species is so well
    known is clearly visible. I've heard it tastes like lemon
    sherbet, but have not had the inclination to taste it for
    some reason.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Very interesting photo! To be honest, I won't be getting out my sherbert spoon when I see my lowii making this either!

    Nectar is one thing, this stuff... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    I would try it, but I don't have any clue what the expiration date is once it's harvested, lol.
