    Cephalotus follicularis

    Got one "Cephalotus follicularis" for 1 month or so now. Now the pitchers are starting to open up (: Got some questions should I fill the pitchers with 30% water in them or they are doing that themselfs ? And what can I feed it with to get a nice grow on it ?

    Added some pics off it might be good to know iff u guys think it looks healthy and such ?

    If the plant is healthy the pitchers should have fluid in them even before they open. Carefully shine a bright flashlight through the pitchers and you should be able to make out the fluid levels.

    Your plant looks reasonably healthy to me.

    How are you growing it (watering, temperatures, hours of light per day etc.)? Where do you live? Answers to these questions will help us in giving you tips.

    As for feeding see some of the other topics being discussed even as we speak.

    Sure, if the lids are open for business you can certainly feed them if you wish. Ants I recall are their staple food in the wild. In absence of fish food you can feed them ants. Tweezers will help.
