    in regard to plantdoctors statement I quote
    I really have a hard time bealivng this, the eggs would have been digested much before they hatched. I own a 20 foot by 20 foot square of pitcher plants, tropical or non. THERE outside, i inspect them everyday, and not even a roch has laid eggs in mine, plus were are you keeping yours? A ROACH? Dude thats sick those things are worse than flies, they eat flesh poop hair paint nails ETC. if yours is inside and it caught a roach, no offense. But, i have never seen a roach on my property my whole life. And dude? what do you mean by tree frogs? INSIDE? what? im sorry but this post makes no sense! About the roaches and frogs!?! end quote
    i have a very large S.purpea and very densly packed it is about a foot wide and the whole circular area is clutterd with pitchers.that area between the pitchers is ablolutely packed with various wild life,such as tree frogs and roaches and asaw it with live young actually i just assumed it came from eggs lots of disgusting little white tinny puss balls. oh and i live in florida and its not uncommon to see many roaches in your house even with extensive pest control. and i keep all my cp's outside at this point.oh and you see quite a few tree frogs in yourhouse all the time,they come in when you open the door. oh and isnt it the general consensus and rules of this forum to keep confrontation to a minimum esp. over small issues like a simple un offensive post i dont really care how it was dirrected at me but,you could cause young cp growers to feel unconfortable here, and thus not benifit from every bodies experience. forgive me if i sound preachy.

    Ok lets get back on track. I purchased some of the Can o Crickets at my local petshop and noticed within 3 hours in an N.Truncata pitcher the cricket was falling apart and being broken down, SO lithopsman you should have no trouble with your crickets when your plant makes a new pitcher.

    Actually Plantdoctor, seeing as a roach can be stuck in a microwave for fair amount of time and walk out unscathed it is possible, they are bombproof and so are theis eggs. Roach ootheca (that is the technical term for their egg cases) are actually extremely durable and could easily withstand the dilute solution inside a S. purp pitcher.

    NepG,

    Thank you for bringing the topic back to where it should be [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    When feeding a Nep, are there any general rules on maximum prey size? Should one keep insects on the small side to be safe, or can they take prey that's say 1/2 the size of the pitcher? Leo
