    The plant looks much better. You shouldn't have any worries about feeding that plant small items like ants. The old leaves are very unlikely to dew back up. If you want, its worth takings some of those old leaves and making leaf cuttings out of them.

    It's always recommended to take the healthiest leafs for cuttings, so I would just leave them on there, so that it can also provide the plant with some extra photosynthesis.

    That plant can handle an ant and like I said. It will catch its own food outside.

    A leaf caught a very small flying insect, not a mosquito. But it's just half curl, and it took the leaf like 8-9 hours to do the half-curl. Lolz.
    I hope it really feeds well, not just a lazy curl because its too small prey.. XD XD XD

    Not all drosera close around their prey quickly. 8-9 hours sounds reasonable to me.

    Wow that's a large fly. That'll be a nice boost for the plant. Just one thing I was wondering about. What kind of intermedia did you get? Is it one of the tropical forms?

    I dont know even until now. Its still growing apprx 5-6 new leaves everyday tho. So I think it really like the light and the hunidity
    Will it be different if its the temperate form? I mean, like it will die because it doesnt have resting period?

    The good thing living in hot n humid tropical area was the pesky bugs.
    I left my plant outside and I saw 3 more small bugs was stuck.
    Idk if the plant can handle too many bugs at once. Will it be too tired or wikl it be very happy....

    You should ask the person that you received the plant from whether or not its a temperate form the plant. If it is you will need to provide a dormancy period for it eventually. I wouldn't worry about too many insects being caught. Heavier feeding helps to result in more vigorous growth just like fertilization does for regular plants.
