    Insect mold inside the pitchers.

    My only Nepenthes that I have is Nepenthes Linda and the plant is hungry for insects . Every day it gets tons of insects , most of them being house flies. In 1 of the pitchers I see that the fly has mold on it and that quite worries me. My question is : What can cause this? Should I empty the content of that pitcher? The plant is healthy and is growing ok so far.

    Mold grows all over the bugs my P. primuliflora catches and no harm is done to the plant. The mold eats dead stuff only.
