wonder what dd these pitchers eat during the show…
its usually no entry for bugs !!!!!


They are very hardy plant and most likely there were insects :). No show is perfect.
Secondly if you maintain plants at a bit lower temperature then they can survive a bit longer as the metabolic rate reduces.


ok, but what happens to all the enzymes… are they still to be secreted and not present in the fluid at the bottom…
does it ever digest itself and develop a gastric ulcer?
