Hello everyone, Just wanted to see if anyone can enlighten me.. I have two small young Nepenthes sitting right next to each other; a Ventrata and a Maxima x Ventricosa. Both have pitchers of approximately the same size. The Ventrata attracts ants and you can see the black dense layer of ants by just looking at it in the light and I often see ants on the outside of its pitchers. The maxima however has zero ants near it and nothing in the pitcher whatsoever?! The pitchers have liquid ( I can see the level in the light) so I'm wondering why there is such a difference between their insect attracting properties. The Ventrata is super full , the maxima empty. Is it something to do with one being a naturally occurring hybrid perhaps? Would love to hear some thoughts/ theories on this! Thank you the Ventrata is filled with ants!!
