    Truncata feeding controversy

    I came upon a thread recently that was started by Mr. Aga a while ago. He photographed a fish that he fed to his truncata. There were people that were upset by this. There were also people that supported him. The thread was insanely long, there were 109 replies. So, for those growers that joined this forum recently, how do you feel? Do you think that What Mr. Aga did was reprehensible or is it no differrent than feeding his plant an insect. You can find it by going to the new thread button. Type in truncata any you will find it.

    A fish? OMG, what a monster!
    Seriously, no big deal. Not worth the arguement. Unless it was some fancy, endangered fish that he took from the wild or something it might as well be a cricket, or in the case of truncata, a rat. Some people are over-emotional and might have a problem with it, but why even bring it up?

    I feel that it was cruel but, I wouldn't really care if he had used a REAL feeder fish.

    When my Nepenthes Ventricosa gets big enough, I plan to feed it lizards.

    people feed mice to their snakes. ARE PLANTS DIFFERENT? why not subsitute mice with a fish. Why can't we spoil a plant thats stuck in a greenhouse or on a window where insects are not as abundant. Especially if its a lowland truncata in a hothouse. The insects have to make it into the greenhouse then into the hothouse and then into the plant pitcher. "feeder fish" it's settled. Just don't feed the plant too much fish especially at once.

    Ahmad where are you going to ge the lizards?

    I am also of the opinion that it was fine for Mr. Aga to feed his truncata a fish.

    anoles are common in florida. (I will get soooo angry if anyone post pics. of one being feed to a plant) D it is different because they are eaten by snakes in the wild and NEED to eat them. Neps are on land and never catch fish under normal conditions and don't even need to eat. Also that fish was a pet, not a feeder fish.
