    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    i've heard you can use like, 1/8 dilute of it and spray it on D. schizandra leaves, and then let it dry then flush it the next day. i saw that somewhere on the boards.

    I would advise caution and controlled experiments with fertilizers. The grower who used this technique is an old hand at CP cultivation, and nowhere did he state the dilution he used on his D. schizandra. I find that growing them outdoors in the warmer months provides all the nutrition my plants need from natural prey capture. There is mention of fertilizing CP, but I can't provide information in this regard since I don't use it. If you do experiment, please provide us with your results: this is very valuable data even if the results are not positive.

    i wonder where i got 1/8 dillution then? thats weird.

    I would just feed it fruitflies and gnats and such. I've also heard you can make a cricket "soup" in the blender, then strain out the big bits and feed it to the plant with an eyedropper.
