    Haha awesome. You've got like a whole ecosystem in there. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Do you also manually feed the Nepenthes with crickets?

    And how about the ants, does every nepenthes pitcher catches a good amount or do you notice any clear differences between pitchers and the ants inside?

    Yes, I manually feed every newly opened pitcher, also the ants loveee the nectar from a new pitcher and ive looked in to find a mass grave of drowned ants. So the plants will get a cricket and some ants, they all grow well I havnt done any tests. I feed my ceph an ant or two...but thats it, it may catch ants on its own but Im not sure.

    I've been meaning to buy a lot of crickets and breed them for lunch purposes, but i want to wait until my plants can eat them fast enought. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    Right now i just feed each pitcher a pillbug from my backyard every so often, they catch a TON of ants though.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.
