    I have my CPs growing outdoors, and most of them catch enough insects on their own to survive. However, I recently received a heliamphora, which doesn’t catch insects well, so I sometimes catch mosquitoes and ants to feed it. Meanwhile, the leaves of the nearby drosera and pinguicula are full of insects, and I’ve thought about transferring a few of them to the helimaphora. The question of whether it would be ethical to move insects caught by one plant to another occurred to me, although I realize that in the greater scheme of things that issue would be deemed rather insignificant. Nonetheless, it’s something that came to my mind. Then from a more practical standpoint, I wonder if the chemicals picked up by the insects caught by the drosera or pinguicula would be harmful to the heliamphora.

    Think of it as the "Robin hood effect" - sharing the wealth around.

    If my sense of ethics went that deep I don't think I'd ever get anything done. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    If you had a coworker and that coworker is not as smart or as well equipped for the job as you. Do you think it would be fair for your boss to take some of your pay and give it to your coworker?
