    I wouldn't feed them for a while. If that stuff is doing anything they should slow down after a while.

    Anyone with thoughts on milk for a Cobra? My cobra is hanging in there, considering its not in the best of conditions. There is new growth, but very slow to forming real pitchers. The original pitcher (is that what they are called) is still there and I wonder if a drop of milk would give strength to the buds that are taking forever to grow.

    I would think sour cream would be a little to fatty since it is the really 'rich' portion of the milk that has been scraped off...

    well, the plants are all doin great, new pitcher growth and all...

    I actually thought it was non-fat sour cream because that's what we usually get, but checked later and saw it was regular. Someone should try some non-fat stuff if they have a chance [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Thumbs up

    Hey everyone,
    Just thought I'd add something. I gave my Flava and Purp. a few drops of whole milk about 2 days before vacation, then I was gone 10 days...I got back and the purp had three new fully developed pitchers with two more on the way, and the flava had 2 more with one on the way....All look nice and healthy too.
    Has anyone tried milk with any other kind of CP (sundew, VFT, ping, whatever)?
