Pig talks about nepenthes (Figure)

In an interview with the Guangzhou Flower Expo Park, the author found that most flower shops hang a string of beautiful nepenthes. According to the owner of the flower shop, this year is the Year of the Pig. The arrangement of Nepenthes means "pig into the water, money is rolling," and there is also the blessing of "bags and peace." This year, many people buy nepenthes for New Year.

Nepenthes, also known as the piglet cage, is a perennial herb of the Nepenthesaceae and is a famous tropical insectivorous plant. Its leaves are composed of three parts: the front is a flat blade; the midrib of the blade extends like a red plastic string, and this climbing organ can be wrapped around other objects or crouching on the rock; at the end of the vein extending from the blade becomes a "缶 "like leaf cage. Nepenthes have a small cover on the leaf cage, with nectaries in the mouth and wax glands on the inner wall. They can secrete wax as a lubricant and have digestive glands at the bottom, which can secrete weakly acidic digestive juices.

How does pitchergrass “eat” insects? Its cage lid is usually half-open, its cage is brightly colored, and the nectaries in the cage can emit fragrance, attracting insects with “color” and “scent”. Because of the smooth inner wall of the cage, insects can easily slip off the bottom of the cage, and then the cage lid is automatically closed. Because the digestive juice of Nepenthes contains the amines that poison the insects and the poisoned erythraine, the insects that fall into the cages are soaked in the digestive fluid and soon die of poisoning. After the insects are digested, they provide nutrients for the growth of Nepenthes.

There are more than 70 kinds of pitcher plants in the world, different species of pitcher plants. The shapes of the insect trap cages are also different, and their colors are also different. They have green, yellow and red colors. Nepenthes's leaf cages are also large and small, small only 3 cm to 4 cm, as large as a finger; large up to 40 cm, can accommodate 500 ml to 600 ml of liquid. It is said that some large pitcher pitcher cages can catch mice. German botanists have observed the phenomenon of Nepenthes "eating" cockroaches. When a cockroach's front half is caught in a cage and the hind half is still exposed outside the cage, it has been unable to get rid of bad luck and eventually died in a cage.

The pig cage grasslands produce tropical areas in Southeast Asia, and China's Guangdong and Yunnan provinces are distributed. In 1789, Nepenthes was introduced to the United Kingdom and later cultivated in the main European botanical gardens. In 1882, horticultural workers bred Nepenthes reinhardtii, and in 1911, they also selected Nepenthes reinhardtii. By the middle of the 20th century, the breeding, breeding, and production of Nepenthes began industrialization, and Nepenthes also gradually entered the home to watch. Since the 1990s, the United States, Japan, France, Germany, Australia and other countries have established the International Carnivorous Plant Association, so that Nepenthes in Europe and other places as indoor potted ornamental plants.

Although wild Nepenthes are distributed in South China, they are rarely used. It was not until the 1980s that fine Nepenthes species were introduced from abroad for flower exhibitions. At present, many flower markets in large and medium-sized cities have pitcher plants for sale. They are used to decorate living room shelves, balconies and bay windows, or hang on garden trees and along the corridors. They are both elegant and chic and can catch mosquitoes.

Nepenthes are dioecious, inflorescences racemose, flowering, flowers small, red or purple. Seeds are usually propagated, seeded immediately after sowing, and potted with water moss as a substrate. Watering is often done after sowing to maintain high air humidity and the basin is covered with plastic film. Seed germination temperature is 27 °C ~ 30 °C, 30 days to 40 days after sowing germination. In addition, pitcher plants can also be propagated using cutting blades. Due to the tropical forests in the pig-grass prairie, it is a hot and humid half-negative environment. Therefore, it is necessary to spray water regularly during the growing season to maintain the surrounding high humidity environment. Nepenthes growth temperature is 25 °C ~ 30 °C, winter room temperature can not be lower than 16 °C, in order to ensure safe winter. Summer must be shaded to prevent direct sunlight from burning the leaves. Autumn and winter should be placed in a sunny place, which is conducive to the growth and development of leaf cages. Every year in February, new pots are replaced when the new root has not yet grown. Potted Nepenthes are commonly used as a mixed substrate of peat moss, sphagnum moss, charcoal, and cedar dander. Generally, it takes 3 to 4 years to produce leaf cages.
