    and that is not a diluted amount of superthirve... packaging calls for 1 drop per gallon. powerful stuff... and yeah.. it should help perk your plants back up.

    The family's starting to perk up a bit - new traps are beginning to unfold on all 4 members. I will pick up some Superthrive later tonight or sometime tomorrow. How often can I use it? Can I just put a drop in a gallon of distilled water, dump some of the new gallon in my bowl and dump some more charged water into my misting bottle? Or will the Superthrive be just a once-in-awhile-treat?

    [qoute]Well here is 2 easy reliable ways to get them back outta shock. #1. Use a diluted amount. (1 drop of it per gallon of distilled water. Use an eyedropper to get it precise.) #2. Just wait! Yes, wait! Your plants if they were healthy before will eventually come out of it on thier own. [/qoute]

    I took issue with the fact you said 1 drop per gallon was a diluted dose NG, do you understand my point now? 1 drop per gallon is a standard dosage! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Bocster,

    I would only use superthrive every now and again. As I understand it, Superthrive promotes mineral uptake through the roots, and contains growth hormone. Nepenthes at least, will stop pitchering if exposed to to much of it, I don't know how a flytrap would react to that much...

    I water about 1 time a month from the top with superthrive, and the rest of the time, I water from the bottom with pure water. Also, be careful when watering from the top, you don't want the water to lift and deposit any peat in the nooks and crannies of your flytrap... that leads to rot... rot is not good!

    OK. Ram. I see your point of view. But what is a diluted dosage AND how do you get such a small amount of Superthrive in the gallon??? I myself allways have used the standard amount.
