    Well?? I'm sure some of you here breed fruitflies to fed to your 'pets'? I could trade some of them for 'newbie' seed, that is, seed that is easily germinated and grown. (ie. D.spat, capillaris, several other rossetted doseras and U.subulata/bisquamata seed). Post here or Pm me if interested.

    Rubrarubra,

    Black crickets? You mean, like the wild kind, as opposed to the tan kind pet stores sell?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Yeah, I found a few black ones and I liked them better than the tan ones. I just feed them some of the alfalfa pellets for feeding guinea pigs and rabbits. They also have a small water dish to drink from and a container with moist peat moss to lay the eggs in. About a month after I caught them, I have gobs of pinhead crickets.

    A little while ago I bought some fruitflies that were genetically fooled with so that they had wings but couldn't fly. They "hatch" from this mysterious blue stuff. They cost about 2 to 3 dollars for one vial. Each vial can hatch about 100 fruitflies. I think they'd be perfect for VFTs concidering that they can't fly. I got them from a pet shop in the reptile section. However, I've never used them for feeding a CP but I'm pretty sure that it won't hurt CPs.

    My wife does't like this, but I will put some crickets in a sealed sandwich bag and put them in the refrigerater for about an hour. Crickets don't jump well when cold. Kinda like an "ice cream treat" to the plants, I think. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
