    Hey! I just came up with an idea! Could I put a potato chip on top of the soil under a trap as a lure? Cause it seems my VFT hasn't caughten a thing and has been outside for 3-4 weeks! Just an idea! Any hints on how to get more bugs to my traps would be much appreciated!!!

    Do you have a dog? One of the best ways I know of to attract flies to a yard is to let the dog do his business nearby... pretty soon your plants will be gorging themselves on flies.

    Maybe just catch one yourself? They don't need to be fed all the time anywho, though they don't complain if you give them a lot...

    Don't put it directly in the VFT pot.. A small deposit nearby should do the trick nicely.

    putting poo into pot = fertilizer for plants

    which defeats the whole purpose of having low-nutrient soil for growing CPs

    Ha yah another one that works well, (at least for my sarracenias) is to place the plants near flowering bushes or other flowers, it attracts necture and pollen loving insects, which in turn attracts them to your hungry plant. There was nothing more satisfying then seeing struggling insects under a cherry bush.
