*These plants currently have pearl bodies, sometimes known as pearl glands, along their stems and leaves. Pearl bodies are very small, clear balls containing lipids, sugars, proteins and carboydrates. Though they look like insect eggs, these are actually exudates from the stomata that function much like extra-floral nectaries on Passiflora species by feeding ant species in exchange for protection from herbivory from other insects. Yet another case of plant-ant mutualism and further evidence that plants and ants just might rule the world. These pearl bodies are completely non-toxic to us and likely provide small amounts of nutrients when we consume them.*
