    My plants were always grown outside and nature took care of things without assist from me. In winter, and for delicate seedlings ground bloodworm meal fish food was my first choice.

    I take a little tropical fish food (flakes, I have a few fish) and crush them up in my palm into fine powder. I then sprinkle a TINY amount over my Sundews and pings. It DOES seem to stimulate growth and never harms the plants.

    I'll mention that these plants are inside and get the occasional fungus gnat as well but not many.

    With neps I give a light spraying with 1/4 strength orchid food every 2 weeks in the spring to summer to promote pitchering if needed.
