    Maybe the plant is more 'agressive' after many weeks without food?

    Very good thread, and helpful for me too.

    I have a lot of dried fruitflies and living ones too. I tried sprinkling the living ones on my Pings this winter and I never saw any stick. I still have not ground up the dried flies like written in the link given above http://carnivorousplant.com/growing_..._detailed.html I guess I should. I do have a flower on one of my Pings, but I forget the species. (I may have a tag on it at work, I need to check). It has long thin leaves like gypsicola or heterophylla. I kept it watered all winter in a western window and it has flowered off and on since February. I am really still a very green novice with these plants.

    maybe I should do a comparison with bloodworms and crushed fish pellets and see what pings like more.

    I'd love to see the results too! I'm curious since it looks like Cindy's pings really enjoy bloodworms!

    Some updates, 5 months later.

    The two original containers of Pings. The size will not get much bigger as my temperatures are high year round but the plants are doing very well.




    Two containers of cuttings as well as offshoots (from plants splitting into twos or threes after flowering).
