    I'll have to remember that for my Neps. Does it start to smell at all? I would imagine so once the milk starts to get all old and nasty... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    I've done it many times with new plants that have healthy pitchers. I only do this treatment with newly arrived plants to help them adjust and keep growing fast despite being packaged and repotted. It works very well. I sometimes feed the solution in small amounts to my other plants, or just use strait milk. You can even spray it on the leaves, but don't let it collect too much in the soil. I've noticed that when I don't feed the plants with this, they slow down in growth considerably.

    I think I'm going to try feeding my Neps milk either today or tomorrow. I'll see if there's a grow spurt...
