    feeding cephalotus

    I recently started feeding my larger ceph pitchers (1.5-2.5" ) with house flys I catch ( I make a trap) and place them in the plant while they're still alive in hopes of of stimulating the pitcher. So far I fed about 12 flies split up between three plants and the pitchers havnt responded negatively. So I was thinking what have other ceph wners been feeding thier plants? I've searched and I haven't seen feeding cephs discussed as much except for the betta pellets and other fish foods.

    I have noticed that since feeding (over the last two and a half months) thier growth has seemed to been better. By that I mean before feeding the flies they would send out about one pitcer at a time. Now I've noticed its sending ot 2-3 fists at a time However I"ve only been feeding these 3 plants out of the 5 I currantly have.

    That's a very good question Flip.

    As a fairly new Ceph grower myself, I've often wondered what is considered "best" as their nutritional supplementation.

    I put two small dried bloodworms in each large adult pitcher of my typical Ceph. So far everything appears okay.

    Flip, see here too.

    Ther Savage Garden says that you can feed it small sow bugs, pill bugs, tiny ants, dried insects, wingless flies, and baby crickets can be fed to it. Hope this helps.
