    If it makes you nervous and you like organic, use crickets or bloodworms (Be careful, those almost killed me) or flies or whatever. Remember, air circulation is important against fighting and preventing mold.

    You can just order them online? We are about 200 miles from a pet store so online is all we can do otherwise I will have to feed fertilizer in the winter....

    Thanks for the tip on circulation!
    They are slowly and painfully killing you.....did you know that?

    Yep. I think this site sells "canned crickets" and other reptile online stores sell them.

    The plants don't NEED insects, but do benefit from them. And fertilizer is very safe as long as dilute it and don't go crazy.

    Just do a Google search on "freeze dried bloodworms". I'm sure you'll find an eTailer near you.

    for the most part these terms realte to Nepenthes
    lowland-hot temperatures. think florida or hot tropical jungles.(example N. Bicalcarata)
    intermediate- cool-warm temps. most can grow and pitcher inside your home if given time.(example N. Copelandii)
    Highland- cool temperatures. think spring. (example N. Veitchii)
    Ultra highland- cold temperatures. there are only a couple that are in this range and all are not very easy to grow, are very slow growing but usually have very nice pitchers on them. many growers use wine coolers and modified fridges to reconstruct its natural habitat. (examples N. Villosa N. Macrophylla and N. Singlana[sp?])

    once you get the hang of youll be able to tell what is what.

    freeze dried blood worms are sold in just about any petshop in the fish area under food.

    Thanks for clearing that up!

    Next question, is there a list of some kind of the intermediate nepenthes, those are the ones I think would do good in our home.

    I can see that CPs are a lot like corals in that there are tons of names to be learned, lol. Hope it wont take to long to get it all down.

    N. ramispina, ventricosa, ventrata, miranda, sanguinea, spathulata, maxima should all grow well for you. Those are just a few.

    And the pitchers look totally different once they reach the vining stage of their life
