    Hubby keeps carnivorous fish but he only feeds them the mealworms. The pupae, he feeds to my Neps.

    Where does one find fish emulsion?? (not locally, that's for sure...)

    I can't even find a decent source online.

    I feed live mealworms to all my Neps and they seem to like it. For normal sized pitchers I only feed 2 or 3 at a time. The truncata gets more, of course, and I haven't noticed any foul odors coming out of it yet.

    This is demented, but sometimes I name them before I drop them in the pitchers. I haven't quite made my way through the current administration yet - must feed my plants more often!

    I feed mealworms to the VFTs, too, but sometimes they chew the pitchers trying to escape. It's hard trying to find ones that are small enough for the flytraps but I find they do really well when fed.

    Haven't tried the dried ones...

    Ok... I get two kind of mealworms, the freeze-dry ones and a can of ZooMed's Can O' Worms:



    I open the can and almost puke the lunch...

    I check the expiration date and was ok, but the smell was so strong that I don't dare to put it on the freezer, so that can of food go to the trash. (the only one interested on the can was my cat... I guess the smell was tasteful for him!)

    The dry ones don't have any smell, so I think this will be the ones to use, I'm going to hydrate a little bit the worm before droping it on the pitcher and let see how good the plants do with this meal.
