    No, it wasn't really something I was experimenting with. I just wanted to make the point that light fertilization will not ultimately harm the plants, as long as proper "flushing" is performed from time to time.

    ^ The article I linked touches on this. He foliar fed with a high nitrogen fertilizer but made sure to flush it out before foliar feeding again.

    PlantPlanter: Surprising results! I may have to try it with my Dionaea. Currently doing some leaf pullings so I may try a small experiment in the coming months.

    I simply ask because if I water my plants with rainwater several times in spring I find I get a sudden profound increase in pitcher production on my Darlingtonia
    But seriously, without a control plant/s any observation is anecdotal.
