    Everyone says stay away from it, but the few that have used it seem to get incredible growth. My guess is, if you do it right, your plants will love it. But if you wrong, they die. Check the other thread.

    can you? yes, Osmocote(sp?) woks well.

    should you? depends. if your plants are growing fine without it i wouldnt bother. i dont fertilze mine though there are a couple that im thinking of trying it with. most do fine on a steady diet of escaped fruit flies from me feeding my dart frogs and the odd house fly and other critters.

    There is a nepenthes vendor on the net (you can google "nepenthes fertilizer," I'm quite sure). They report rediculous results with it. I am trying it out on two ventricosa seedlings right now. It's been two weeks, and no bad stuff yet....Even a new leaf, but too early to tell if that's from the fertilizer or just regular growth.
