    I feed koi pellets to my neps sometimes. You could do it, but just give it a TINY piece.

    every time a new pitcher is open I drop in one squished waxworm. I find its easier for them to digest if its skin is slightly ripped or broken.

    I just let em' wing it, and i drop in anything i find crawling around the house. I suppose it would work though. I used to use pillbugs to feed my neps when they were indoors.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    so TS yours are outside? Thats awesome that way they can do it them selves.

    I forgot to mention I passively feed my campanulatas fruit flys. What I do is get a bannana and leave it in the back yard for a few days, sometimes I forget about it for alittle to long. Then I place the fruit in my grow chamber and let the flys hatch and do whatever. I Then notice that they only go my campanulats and my smaller pitchers that I can't feed waxworms to. I'd imagine this would work rather well for people with sundews.

    Crickets crickets crickets. I have only killed a very few pitchers with over feeding. Just try to size the cricket to the pitcher. It should not take up more than 1/8 or so the total pitcher volume. I have cheated on that a few times, sometimes ok, sometimes not. Killed a jacquelenae pitcher with a cricket about 1/3 the pitcher volume....silly, silly Schloaty
