    My pitchers are still rather small. An eye dropper worked great to get the drop right into the opening. Check out your local hobby store, I got a pkg of I think 20 of them for about $5 (that was quite a long time ago so dont quote me on the price lol)

    If your sarracenias are living outside, they shouldn't have any trouble catching their own bugs. If you do decide to use milk, try giving them as little as possible... one drop per plant should work as a supplement. Keep in mind that they didn't evolve to digest cow stuff... and if you give them too much it's rot and gets' REALLY gross!
