ok, so I was watering my lowland neps tonight and found a great big suprise for me with my N. sumatrana. An army ant colony has decided to take up residency in the growing mix! and here it is March with snow on the ground outside! I have no clue where they would have come from, but as I was hurridly shaking the ants off of my hand back into the lowland tank, I started to look at my other plants in this chamber (I have the sumatrana in there, along with a N. ventrata and N. veitchii). I found the traps of the ventrata and veitchii filled with dead ants, but none in the N. sumatrana * [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
* Now, here's my question: do you think this ant colony will harm the N. sumatrana? the plant appears to still be growing very well, and the other plants,needless to say, are enjoying the treat. I most likely will need to change the medium but likely won't be able to get to it till this weekend.
I just find it funny that the ventricosa and veitchii are eating well, but the ants seem to be ignoring the traps of the sumatrana?
* *I saw an ant last week around the outside of the chamber and didn't really think *much about it (and promptly fed it to my D. capensis), but I guess I have found where the ant was coming from tonight!!!! * *
