สมัยเรียนเคยเรียน “หนี้สงสัยจะศูนย์” มา กลัวความรู้จะหายไป เลยขอเอามาตั้งชื่อโพสว่า “หม้อสงสัยจะอัพ” แล้วมันจะอัพป่าวไม่รู้ เพราะมันมีมาเมื่อไหร่
มันก็เหี่ยวเน่าไป เนื่องจากกระถางเล็กไป ความชื้นไม่พอ… และก็ได้เปลี่ยนกระถางไปแล้วตามโพสที่แล้วที่ได้โพสไป วันนี้เลยเอาหม้อสงสัยจะอัพมาโพสบ้าง
หวังว่ามันคงจะเป็น “หม้ออัพ” UPPER PITCHER!!
หลายท่านอาจไม่รู้จักหม้ออัพก็ลองอ่านดูก่อนนะครับ จาก wiki คัดลอกมาให้อ่าน…
Nepenthes species usually consist of a shallow root system and a prostrate or climbing stem, often several metres long and up to 15 m (49 ft) or more, and usually 1 cm (0.4 in) or less in diameter, although this may be thicker in a few species (e.g. N. bicalcarata). From the stems arise alternate sword-shaped leaves with entire leaf margins. An extension of the midrib (tendril), which in some species aid in climbing, protrudes from the tip of the leaf; at the end of the tendril the pitcher forms. The pitcher starts as a small bud and gradually expands to form a globe- or tube-shaped trap.
Basic structure of an upper pitcher
The trap contains a fluid of the plant’s own production, which may be watery or syrupy and is used to drown the prey. Research has shown that this fluid contains viscoelastic biopolymers that may be crucial to the retention of insects within the traps of many species. The trapping efficiency of this fluid remains high, even when significantly diluted by water, as inevitably happens in wet conditions.
The lower part of the trap contains glands which absorb nutrients from captured prey. Along the upper inside part of the trap is a slick waxy coating which makes the escape of its prey nearly impossible. Surrounding the entrance to the trap is a structure called the peristome (the “lip”) which is slippery and often quite colorful, attracting prey but offering an unsure footing. Above the peristome is a lid (the operculum): in many species this keeps rain from diluting the fluid within the pitcher, the underside of which may contain nectar glands which attract prey.
Nepenthes usually produce two types of pitchers, known as leaf dimorphism. Appearing near the base of the plant are the large lower traps, which typically sit on the ground. The upper or aerial pitchers are usually smaller, differently-coloured, and possess different features from the lower pitchers. These upper pitchers usually form as the plant reaches maturity and the plant grows taller. To keep the plant steady, the upper pitchers often form a loop in the tendril, allowing it to wrap around nearby support. In some species (e.g. N. rafflesiana) different prey may be attracted by the two types of pitchers. This varied morphology also often makes identification of species difficult.
Prey usually consists of insects, but the largest species (e.g. N. rajah and N. rafflesiana) may occasionally catch small vertebrates, such as rats and lizards. Flowers occur in racemes or more rarely in panicles with male and female flowers on separate plants. Seed is produced in a four-sided capsule which may contain 50?500 wind-distributed seeds, consisting of a central embryo and two wings, one on either side.
ผมเลยนำรูปหม้อสงสัยจะอัพมาให้ดูกัน มาช่วยผมลุ้นด้วยครับ เพราะผมชอบหม้ออัพมาก ๆ ครับ ผมว่ามันสวยดี อิอิ
