Leuco autumn pitchers

Recommended Posts

There are plenty of bugs where they grow naturally,they often are full to the brim in a couple of days and the bugs can crawl out of the top.

nature doesn't waste stuff,just recycles it

Thanks, so I suppose they're exploiting the later part of the season whilst flavas make their large pitchers early to make the most of the early season insects. It just made me wonder when I was looking into my empty autumn pitchers and wondering why they bother at this part of the season, it's easy to forget you're in Yorkshire and not the Southern States...

My opinion is evolution....I believe the leuco's have this trait because it benefits them in regards to where they live. Perhaps the explanation as to why other sarracenia do not have the same traits is they evolved differently or never had/spread the mutation?
