    All I know is that I will be adding a ceph to my collection. I've yet to make up my mind for what I'll do with the aquarium (terrarium)!

    Last year all the pitchers of my ventrata half full of bees so just wait. That 2 gallon tank will fill up too quick. I filled a 10 gallon like that.

    I think the problem with the flies(and correct me if I am wrong) is they like stinky stuff-not sweet nectar. If you feed some pitchers so they get a little stinky, the flies may try a closer look.

    Cheers,

    i can prove and disprove that... VFTs-sweet nectar and no smell. Sarracenia-...now. depending on what you have the nectar can really stink. my first sarr was a 'Judith Hindle' and it reeked!! flies loved it and it was filled to the rim in a week or 2(fall time...). nepenthes probably taste better to some bugs and not others...

    depends on the species of fly, not the plant

    Maybe nectar from X plant smells good to us but stinky (good) to them and nectar from X plant smells bad to them but good to us (not stinky).
