    On a website I found someone highly recommending Ortho Systemic Insect Killer for nepenthes (and maybe other CPs, I don't remember). They used it safely on a large number of plants. I've also used it with no apparent ill effects. And I just like systemic stuff... I feel like they have nowhere to hide. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Yea, that's what I've got right now. I really like it, but my family has been into the organic-no-pollutant-healthy thing lately and I was just wondering how effective this stuff is. I guess I could buy a vft or something really cheap and get it infected and see if it works. I guess that is about the only way to find out.

    I use Orthene, I don't think it's sold anymore. Gotta dilute that stuff, or it'll kill the bugs and the cp [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
