It's interesting to see even how the delicate structure of the pitcher matches with the delicate preys it catchers. I wonder whether inermis has ever caught a giant roach or something like that. I'd bet the roach would escape the inermis trap, but not a truncata's
Walterg ..... I have not had the plant very long (less that two years). I got it from tonyp a while back and it has taken off and grown fast.
longor ....... It has been growing under highland conditions and yes, the fluid is sticky and viscous.
Robert ....... I'm not absolutely sure that it is an "eye spot". I usually recognize these as areas where the pitcher interior is missing the waxy epidermis. With N. inermis there is no waxy layer and the spot seems only visible in the right lighting conditions. I only noticed one but this would not be too unusual either. In the peristome picture you might also notice a circular discoloration on the interior of the pitcher just below where the lid attaches. I'll have a better look at it tomorrow but I am no longer surprised to find "eye spots" on any nepenthes.

has anyone done Photos of nep pitchers with UV lighting? I saw a documentary on insect, and how they see the world, and when they show what the insect see, including UV light, its like another planet. I wonder how bizzare the pitchers would look if we can see UV..
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
