Ok, I'm back on the chair now...!
I feed my Neps every 7-14 days (I'm gonan be feeding tonight actually). I try to do it every week but sometimes I'm busy with some other project and don't think to feed them. But they really do respond quite exceptionally to good feeding. I never was gonna feed my plants but people said that they would grow bigger and faster if I fed them with insects and they really do!
You do have to be careful with small pitchers and certian species who have very thin walled/delicate pitchers because they will rot very easily if a bit too much food is given at one time. I generally don't put more than one pinhead or two week old cricket in small pitchers (or large N. campanulata pitchers-which are still small) and one large adult cricket in each active large pitcher every one to two weeks. Whatever you feed be sure that it is completely submerged in the pitcher fluid, anything dead that sticks out of the fluid will rot and can be a place for fungus to settle in. I only use reptile feeder crickets and whatever happens to sneak into the growing chambers on it's own (Ladybugs mostly). I continue to feed the pitchers weekly/biweekly until they start to dry up and wither.
