    Hey D mus,
    A little off the topic, but I have found that my new pitcher has gained some rather interesting coloration since I moved the plant a little close to the lights....I'll try to remember to take a pic tonight (it's feeding day! gotta buy some crickets).

    Which pitcher? You have a campanulata?

    You missed out on the NECPS meeting, Schloaty, but thanks for leaving the Byblis to me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Dear all:

    I respect everybody's point of view regarding milk feeding for neps. One must understand though that in this type of hobby, one encounters plants that are difficult to get and they are very tiny. Thus, anything that can speed up growth should be welcome. At least, that's how i think.

    Perhaps some of find very disgusting and revolting to feed milk to pitchers besides being very unnatural for neps, but some of us grow our neps in unnatural ways using tanks and strong lights. So for unnatural ways of growing neps, there are unnatural ways to feed them. It looks like they go hand by hand.

    Well, in the last week, my S. leocyphila (no dormancy this year) just produced a huge pitcher, twice as big as the last 3!!!!. I had been feeding it milk for months, and the first of this new crop of pitchers has proven that milk is very benificial. It also just produced 2 new growth points. I took a pic with a throw away camera, and haveto develop them soon. Almost there [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] .

    i see that im the only person that objected to feeding milk, so i think this was ment for me. well, i never said it was disgusting! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] . i just said i don't like to feed it milk due to a number of reasons:
    1) i don't like curdling milk
    2) i don't like a stinky terranium
    3) i don't like rotting pitchers no matter what the result is
    4) i don't buy the kind of milk thats sutable to neps
    5) milk feeding is too hard as i have to get the drops right and reach into my terranium
    6) i cant feed the pitcher bugs while im milk feeding
    7) i'd rather see the bug struggling for help [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] than whatching milk curdle [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    well, thats just me. i know you people like feeding it milks, but ive got crickets and im not afraid to use them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] . Zongyi
