    No, but I've observed the little hellions UNDER pings--under the leaves, slurping up energy.

    Otherwise I've just seen small gnats being caught by pings.

    I have tried feeding aphids to my pygmy droseras and I did not get any infestations. The pygmies were planted very close to each other in a large clump. The aphids had no way of bypassing the sticky leaves. Also fed them to my P.gigantea, being careful not to let them escape. I haven't observed any aphids caught naturally. Even if I did I would not be able to tell if it was an aphid or gnat.

    Yep...two clones actually. One that is sticky on both side of the leaves, and another that is sticky on only one side of the leaves.

    What if you held the aphids by the legs, upside down, then plopped them ontop of the leaves, that way it cant walk away... I'm good at sadism... Ask me if you need ritualized, methodical, and sadistic ways of feeding your plants... Hehehe...
