    Feeder crickets are awesome for beefing up Neps that have pitchers big enough to feed without rotting them however I always also fertilized at least twice a month with Gro More Urea Free orchid fertilizer. It has all the macro and micro-nutrients (including zinc). I still use it on my succulents, I've just switched to a phosphate heavy version instead of a balanced one like Tropical 20-20-20.

    I should add for the Neps I only used it at about 1/2 strength and watered the Neps twice a week so every fourth watering they got some liquid ferts and every two weeks each pitcher big enough got a defrosted cricket, sometimes several if it was a huge pitcher.

    Do be kind and tell your family or roomates that you're keeping crickets in a certain bag in the freezer... they hate those kinds of "suprises" when they're looking for food!

    lol! I remember as a kid my uncle had stashed a bunch of fowl he must not have had time to dress in the freezer and didn't tell me. He said "go get us some ice cream" so I ran to get some ice cream and found a freezer full of dead birds!
