Nepenthes truncata and N. veitchii capture five house mice, but no shrew.

This winter, we had a whole shrew family (Soricidae species) in our greenhouse. These predators are not interested in Nepenthes nectar; therefore, none of them became captured. If house mice come for a visit, things look very different. Here is our film on the overall five house mice (Mus musculus), meanwhile captured by Nepenthes inside our greenhouse.

Very very interesting! I’ve never heard that a veitchii too had digested a mouse!! About the truncata, I’ve seen your photos of 2007 and another your video....

Your truncata and veitchii are amazing (I’ve a very small truncata e a extremely small veitchii and I hope they will become a little similar to yours!!!!).

the video is interesting also for seeing the size of the pot of extremely big nepenthes like yours!!!!

I new in growing nepenthes and I really appreciate the video, thanks again!!!
