    If you have a bright light you can hold the nep up between your eye and the light and you should be able to see a line of fluid, depending on the species and color. As they age they will start producing fluid before the lid even pops.

    My Capensis and spatulata stopped making dew, probably cause of low humidity and not enough light. a couple nights ago I got this really nice miniature green house. hopefully they'll start making dew again... Also I put a spider on my capensis. It was probably about a quarter of an inch across. I left it there for three days and it wouldn't get stuck nor would the leaf curl around it. I don't know, might have been to big... anyway I got angry and fed the spider to my Ramispina. How big of an insect can a Capensis take?

    anything that is edible(no rocks, ect.) and is light enough to be on the leaf and have the leaf not collapse... anything that falls under that(and then some!) your capensis will eat. it may mold and rot th leaf...but itll sure as heck try!

    Today I gently poured the water out of my sanguinea into a cup to see if any thing was in there, it was all thick and runny. I also held one of my closed ventricosa's up to a light. It now has a little fluid in it. All my pitchers seemed happy and ready for a long awaited meal, I celebrated by going to the woods to scope out some slugs and worms. I gave my truncata a nice big slug. (I got that plant from Jeff, the Sarracenia north west guy, at the saturday market) I think all my plants really like the green house now and it's starting to show.

    -peace
