    Now, you cant water your plant with a plant growth liquid...

    but what if you soaked a bug in it or say had a captipiller and pumped it full of some....

    same effect or since it take minerals through there traps, would it be good for them or what?

    Want a pure guess? You'll burn the trap.

    I'd say that's more a sure bet than a guess. Your just changeing how you apply it. The results will be pretty much the same.

    once my plant gets a few extra traps i think i should try it.

    Not a super saturated bug..

    but maybe soak it well.. inject it only with some?

    would be cool if the trap received no damamge.


    question... what do you think?

    If i fed it a bug injected with it, the trap digested it fine...

    is there anything else that could go wrong? (other then the trap getting killed)

    I don't think so--losing the trap is the defense mechanism against just such a problem.

    Trim off the trap, but not the leaf, once it blackens, so that the plant gets some benefit of the sun.
