    I have the majority of my plants at the lab, in an upper apartment next door. It is hot up there! I opened a window and filled a few cups with banana peels, wild strawberries, and orange rinds. I placed them in startegic places at the window and the plants. I knocked one of the cups over yesterday and a bunch of fruitflies flew out of there, like bats out of a cave. I can see my D. adelae & P. primuliflora deriving the benefits of this.

    Anybody else do anything similar?

    well, auctually i do something like that.

    i'll find a big antpile and shovel the dirt into a gallon ziplock bag. freeze it and then put the dirt in water. as the dirt disolves the ants float to the top and i skim em off with a fishtank net.

    makes a great snack for the dewies!

    hm... I gave some ants to my sundews and the leaves they were on turned brown (all the way) and died. They were tiny ants too. I'm guessing the formic acid killed the leaves.
