    Talking

    I heard that maybe fishfood (flakes) could be good for feeding pinguicula is that true?, if not what else can i give to my ping instead of insects? (since there are no many of them around here)
    Time-shift your imagination, the Truth is up to the limits of existence.

    Question

    I wouldn't use flakes, unless you have more than one plant to experiment with. Freeze-dried Bloodworms work very well for my Pinguicula and Drosera. The kind I use has no other ingredient added besides mosquito larva.

    Cindy, our moderator from Singapore, initiated a topic (which I cannot find at the moment) that shows pictures of Mexican pings with heart-shaped freeze dried bloodworms on their leaves.

    hmm...I wanted to post later but it seems jimscott forced me into the open. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Here goes:





    Actually, the bloodworms are not freeze-dried. They are frozen and I let them melt before I feed them to my newts and CPs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    Awwww! It's so cute! I need to draw things with corpses on my leaves too =).
    If the dragon is bigger than his treasure, it's not worth the effort.
