    Ok, I was unsure on that one as a lot of things in Au and the USA have different names for the same thing, or same name for different things (like our Paw Paw is your papaya, but you have another plant called a paw paw that is very different)
    I think I made that mix up on this forum.

    I'll have to look into that. I am not familiar with it. Bayer makes it...

    I also forgot to mention that mixing it at the correct rates is not phytotoxic to Drosera either. Basically whenever pesticides are involved, the people who get into trouble are those without precise measuring spoons. I have a set that goes down to 1/32 tsp.
