    I'm surprised you guys feed your plants caterpillars- thats the sworn enemy of any carnivore. They eat their way out of all my carnivores, even the fly trap I have that's notorious for eating wasps.

    To the OP: awesome photography.

    That's why I only put them in my purp since they drown in the water. I'm a little nervous about putting them in my other plants

    You are right, large caterpillars sometimes will eat their way out of my pitchers, but I have not seen a problem with small ones. I have more wasps and bees chew holes through pitchers trying to escape than caterpillars though, they chew a hole just big enough for their heads to get through but not their bodies, haha.

    Thank you for the comment about the photos!
