    I remember taking about wingless fruit flies for feeding indoor CPs in one of the other forums one time and I went to check on the Maryland CP Nursery site because I haven't been there in a while and the first thing I saw was information on them. Now the Maryland CP Nursery sells them and teaches you how to keep them alive forever. Here's the link, http://www.carnivorousplantnursery.c...fruitflies.htm
    In the instructions it says "medium" and you can buy that for $2.00 he also has a set of 6 vials with foam tops to buy for $12.00 so pretty much, so for $24.00 (I added another 12 to buy your first set of live flies) you can have a neverending supply of food for your CPs. That's pretty cool. If I wasn't broke I'd probably order them. lol

    you can, only if it isn't your site or if its something PFT already sells. PFT doesn't sell fruit flies.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Is a fly still a fly if it doesn't have wings? Hmmm... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    No, but they do sell many of the plants listed.

    when i had dart frogs i used to "breed" one winged fruit flies and feed my plants on the side. they're really easy to maintain, in fact, sometimes i had to release some because they grow so fast! i always used deli containers that i cut a square hole out the top, them smashed it full with a spounge from the art supply store (they don't come pre-soaped) and presto, fly hive. i have a cheap & simple recipie for the fly food if you're serious about wanting to grow flies for food. rather then spend bucks on wingless, i would just buy the one-winged variety at most local pet shops. sometimes you'd get a few with two wings but that's not such a bad thing, they would always end up on the sundews or in the nepenthes cups anyway.

    I use to keep flightless fruit flies. They were a PITA to keep. They're stinky and love to escape.

    In the description on the website he says that they don't have a scent. Maybe you had something different?
