    Back to the original question.

    Prehaps you misunderstand the situation. Cps are caring and wonderful plants. Can't you see what is happening!! The drosera and pinguicula a very concerned about the health of the new found friend. Sure he looks a little funny, but they can over look that. They know he needs to eat, but he lack the cunning of a well seasoned hunter so they are catching extra food for him. But alas, they can not get the food to him. Try as they might they can not reach their friend. They call to you, "Help, help". Listen closely!

    Heliamphora are not the best bug catchers in the world...They might have evolved to catch whatever falls into their pitchers(leaves, frog poop from frogs sitting in the pitchers) . They might be a good candidate for a liquid food of some kind. I know one lady from S. Carolina who used to alternate every two weeks with dilute orchid fetilizer in the pitchers, then in the soil.
    I must be in a humourless mood today to take such a serious answer apporoach to this question..... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Cheers,

    Is it unethical to take a bug from a Drosera and eat it yourself? And, if the bug's still alive, are you a good hunter or just a common scavenger?

    If it was already trapped, you're a bad hunter (those are canned hunts!)
