    I am currently doing an experiment with my Dente fly trap. I am feeding it something that it would not normally eat, an EARTHWORM. If any one has ever done this please enlighten me on your outcome.

    i've never done it , but it has been tried before . make sure that the wrom does live in your vft soil or else it will make it nutrient and the vft could die .

    Well, its starting to digest it now. Ive noticed a red juice that has extracted itself a little bit from the trap. Looking at the flytrap with a flashlight you can see that the earthworm is turning to a "MUSH".

    Well, your plant might be okay with it, but there's a greater chance it won't do well with it. That individual trap anyway. I do know that earthworms are a bit too rich for the VFTs...

    To anyone who sees this do not feed youre vft earthworms. The trap started giving off this foul rotten oder, so i aborted that experiment,(CLIP)....
