    Some wasps have been able to chew their way out of my traps, and I've had some bad luck with grasshoppers.

    Well what ever the beetle was that I fed to mine turned the trap black or atleast part of it. Should I trim off that leaf or let it die off on it's own? Could I use that leaf as a leaf cutting? The ant in one of the other traps seems to be going well so far, but it was a very small black ant.

    Not to worried about it, it's popping out new traps like crazy.

    Well, since I don't want to feel guilty about wasting bandwidth, I'll ask this question here.

    I read the, "Flowering," thread and couldn't find anything on where to cut the stalk. If I want to cut off the flower, how big should I let it grow and how far down should I chop it off?

    Last year mine ate a lot of the ants and never had a problem, they were extremely proficient at catching ants. It seems the ants would drink the nectar right underneath the spines of the traps and would caught perfectly every time I watched.

    One thing you don't want to feed is lightning bugs! Mine (long since dead) caught one once and it was a nice parlor trick for the evening, the flashing trap caused by the insect in its death-throes, but the whole plant soon died. I think this was caused by the huge amounts of phosphorous it gave my plant.

    So, when is it best to chop off the flower stalk, and where do I make the cut?
