Squatters in my purple pitchers
Mosquito larvae have taken residence in the pitchers of my purple pitcher plant.
1. They're fairly well developed, so I assume they've been there for some time as they can't just jump in a pitcher once they've hatched, but they aren't being digested.
2. Neither Miranda nor Ventrata have larvae. Maybe because they make their own fluid, and the PP's use rainwater?
3. When the mosquitos mature will they be able to escape, or will the plant digest them like all the others?
4. Are they hurting the plant?
