    Has this post been forgotten? Has rampuppy left? I think this topic could be extremly usefull as plants begin to finish dormancy.

    Hi All!!
    I am new to this site but couldn't help adding to this thread...
    I have a very spindly leucophylla which because of this, doesn't catch many bugs. It gets plently of light and water and is healthy otherwise, and sending up new pitchers. Would whole milk increase the width of the traps, or just the height? Any ideas? thanks, Mikala.

    Hi Mikala and welcome to our forums! You're heading into Fall right now, correct? How has this plant been doing for you during the Summer? how long have you had it? Have you put it through dormancy?

    I wish I could answer your question, but I haven't tried milk, cheese or egg yet. I am interested in the answer since mine will be coming out of dormany soon.

    Hi Mikala

    I wouldn't recommend using milk for the upright species since there's a high chance bacteria will get to work on the unnatural food and rot the trap.

    Where are you keeping your leucophylla? Spindly pitchers can be due to lack of light. Leucos really need maximum light exposure, with plenty of direct sun.

    So, what's the consensus on the best food?

    Whey protein isolate? Koi pellets? Fish flakes? Skim milk?

    Fresh or dehydrated insects?

    Why is this not a risk with decumbent species? Are the harmful bacteria anaerobic?
