    I've been thinking of trying some lettuce on my flytraps.

    You should try feeding the plants beans they are supposed to be high in Nitrogen and on the same list is of course is meat and finally leafy greens all high in the things carnivorous plants strive for in their food.

    I have tried beans, nuts, avocado, tofu, and coffee grounds. The grounds were not expected to net much reaction as they are low in protein, but everything else got a strong positive response.

    I hadn't considered trying those things. Very interesting to know.

    My VFT's have always had a strict diet of "If you catch it, you can eat it. If not, go hungry" But then they live outside year round so I never felt the need to hand feed them.

    Just checked the plants this morning. The VFT's trap has reopned and the dew's leaf is free and seems none the worse for it's adventure.

    That's great! My mom does not want me to feed bugs, so tofu looks like a great option!
