    How come I'm filled from top to bottom with sweet sadistic euphoria, everytime I feed my vft?
    My wife watched me when I fed it today, and kinda commented a bit [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Anyone else got the same sort of problem? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Well its fine really, just dont overfeed it. The maximum food they should get is 1 fly every 2 weeks. Feed it too much and you will weaken the plant.
    In their natrual habitat, these plants are known to go 3 months without a fly.

    Starman, I don't know if I beleive that. Quite sure that NC swamps have more bugs than my front stoop, and my VFT's eat like pigs all on their own. No ill effects that I can see. The only problem is that traps don't last through too many meals. However, my plants replace faster than they die off from eating.

    No, Jim, I had a microscope, a sealed off plastic pickle cup thing you get at mc donalds, AND a magnifyer! The plastic pickle cup was for slow, painful deaths, the magnifyer was to burn em alive, and the microscope was to literally burn em instantly. Ooh the humanity!

    EDIT: Just saw starmans post... There is no "REAL" maximum amount of flies to feed. A lot of times, ALL my VFT traps are closed with some bug or another in them. feed all you want, I say, just dont feed hamburger! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Sorry all, could have made a mistake.But I do know these plants can go for very long periods without a fly.
