    Actually, the "hairs" themselves do not secrete the exudate
    observed on the underside of the operculum of N. lowii.
    The exudate is produced by glands, just as in other Nepenthes.

    However, and this is purely speculation on my part, it may be
    that the hairs serve to anchor the exudate in place. It is,
    after all, rather different from that produced by most species in
    that it is opaque and semi-solid. I have also been told that it
    tastes like lemon sherbet, but I've not tried it for myself!

    I have not observed the interaction between fauna and my
    plants since my specimens are grown in an environment devoid
    of macrofauna.

    Hmmm...lemon sherbert! I may have to taste this for myself! Personally N. truncata and bicalcarata taste real good IMHO.
