Last year I used to culture d. hydei for my cp's but the job was very tedious and eventually a native fruit fly contaminated my culture. However the results I had were very good and I want to continue to feed my plants and pick up where I left off but with a larger insect. Eventually I came across pheonix worms which are so cheap that ftm they are not even worth culturing.
I have ordered some pheonix worms to begin a once weekly watering/feeding regimine and once it warms up probably switch to twice weekly depending on how long it takes my plants to go through 100 worms which is what comes in a container will determine whether or not I wish to culture them.
Does anyone else use these worms to feed their plants? If so anything info/tips would be appreciated. my course of action will be to freeze them and thaw them to feed as necessary.
my initial projections indicate 8-10 weeks should be how long it will take me to go through one container feeding once a week but once may rolls around, I will change that window depending on the plant......larger plants will be moved up to twice a week while smaller plants remain on once a week.
