    Below is a photgraph of a community pot (2 inch square) of Pinguicula -- Yucca Do 1713, small plants. Approximately 1 week earlier, I had dusted some of them with a light sprinkling of "Freeze-Dried mosquito larvae" (Bloodworms) which I had ground to a powder. After dusting the chosen few plants with the "Bloodworms" I lightly spritzed all the plants with my usual fertilizer solution. I continued to spray them lightly with my fertilizer solution every few days, but did not add any additional "Bloodworms". See if you can identify the affected plants.

    Clearly the dusted plants are the small ones.

    Yes, the four in the front. The ones that have gained a darker green color.

    Its curious that they would appear to be producing more chlorophyll and yet they are smaller.

    It's only been a week... I also failed to mention that the chosen ones were a little smaller than most of the others when I began.

    Pingman: Out side of more green... Have you noticed any other differences? ...faster leaf production? ...change in water or light needs?
    Thanks

    Perhaps they don't need as much leaf surface for photosynthesis since they have more chlorophyl instead?

    I would have thought more nutrients=bigger bigger plants. But it is obvious that it, in this case, also equals a better use of plant resources for making chlorophil as well. I am curious to know the answers to Andrews questions also.

    How come chicken fingers are bigger than buffalo wings?

    No other obvious differences yet. What I am hoping for is more and more frequent flowers.
