    Not curious enough to drink from a Nep yet... but if I was curious, I'd probably lick a sundew first.
    DOH!

    Thanks for the moral support. Glad I'm not the only one to have tasted. Did not think I would have been!

    Oh... and Chang, don't worry, I'm certainly not tempted to try the pitcher fluid. I doubt very much it'd be nice at all. Anyone able to confirm that?

    Schloaty, I figured the nastier side of the Sarra smell was from the decaying bugs but it has a reall sweetness to it as well. Kind of one of those smells that is nasty, yet you seem to keep sticking your nose in for another sniff

    Aaron.

    I hear tell you can drink from unopened(for obvious reasons!) pitchers for emergency fluid.

    I think it would be pretty funny to have a pic of an ant looking into a nepenthes and then giving him a little caption. haha
