    I read somewhere that milk for Sarrs produced exceptional results, so I tried the same for my Neps. I put in abt 2 drops into one or two pitchers per plant. Can't wait to see if it leads any dramatic growth! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Anyone tried the same?

    Flies are readily available here in Seattle for the summer, I can usually get two or three out of each window in the afternoon. But, when they're not available, I have tried adding one very small drop of 2% milk into one pitcher per plant. It seems to work,esp if you feed on the conservative side. I have notices rapid growth in the the weeks after feeding milk.

    Oh look, three more flies.... *runs to smack at the window with a newspaper*

    There is a stickied thread on Nepenthes feeding right at the top of the forum. I don't believe milk has been discussed yet but it is certainly worth adding there since I have heard of other growers using it very successfully in the past.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hi Finnish kid:

    When you say milk 2%. you mean 2 parts milk and 98 of water or 2% fat milk or low fat milk??. I look forward to your reply.

    I'm pretty sure he means 2% fat milk. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
