    Orangutuans tear the pitchers off unopened and use them as a water supply all the time. Drink it. It won't hurt you.

    There was a Nepenthes article in National Geographic back in the 60's and it shows a photo of the author tipping back the fluid of an unopened pitcher. He described it as warm, but refreshing.

    I have a book from the 50's that says you can even drink the fluid from S. purpurea. The book claims that the top layer of water is pure...yea right!

    I hear that drinking the nectar will cause you to grow breasts and certain parts of the male anatomy will wither and fall off. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    I talked to the bus driver while traversing the Philippine Cordilleras. He said that he drank lots of pitcher-fluid (n.alata) when he was still a boy and playing in the mountains.
    I imagine it like water, but I guess the real challenge is the fluid of a 6 month old outdoor grown decaying veitchii pitcher [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Maybe with some gin added you could sell that even in some discos...

    I was just taking cuttings of my own ventricosa yesterday... If found one unopenend pitcher with juice in it. If you like coconut milk, you might like nepenthes milk.
