    I've used whole milk in the past. One drop, undiluted, in one or two pitchers. And as LLeopardGGecko says, it works great!

    I'm not so sure about milk being used on sundews. I myself have used it for Neps, but have simply never foudn the desire to try it out on a sundew as they catch things anyway. Somehow a bunch of fruitflied got established in a pot of Sarracenia seedlings, my plants have been munching and munching and munching; great for sundews and small Sarracenia.

    Hi peanuts1gang, looks like you have a really healthy strong plant there. It is young, but from the looks of the new growth you should have much larger pitchers and leaves very soon...very nice plant so far. Feed as much as you can without browning the pitchers. I just fed my plants handfuls of crickets and no apparent browning yet; I really cram the pitchers as full as I can (see my avatar? this plant eats about 50 crickets per feeding!).

    I guess either by overfeeding it or feeding it something thats bad for it.

    The more vigorous and healthy a plant, the more food it can accept in its pitchers without browning. If your plant is not in optimal health, too much food will quickly rot a pitcher away.
