Ive got a nice little sarr collection in a balcony box. Nothing to big though. they are growing great, but im having the following issue:
My sarrs are fly slayers, the bugs can stay away but many of the sarrs pitchers arent very large in diameter (they are young plants). often time the bugs get stuck near the top of the pitcher.
What im wondering is if the sarrs can still digest bugs if they dont make it very far down the pitcher. I have several with fly abdomens sticking out the tops. and others with a bunch of flies piled up on top of the 1st one that got stuck only 1/4 of the way down. I was under the impression that they had to fall a ways down the pitcher to get digested.
its also causing a coupld of my pitchers to topple due to being top heavy.
Is the fact that the bugs get stuck near the top ok? if not are they just acting as a plug? should i pick out the stuck bugs?
