    I have a quick question about feeding. Everytime I feed my neps freeze dried bloodworm, the blood tends to get moldy. Am I suppose to crush it up because I just put it whole and make sure the fluid completely covers the bloodworm. Also the newest pitcher is 1/4 the size of the previous pitcher, how can this be when the previous pitcher has captured lots of insects?

    Dude that N. x dyeriana is incredible! Grubs are nutrient packed, so it makes sense.

    I feed mine with NLS fish food, works great. The bloodworms might not be sinking all of the way, so they aren't actually being digested.

    I have fed my nepenthes butterworms (soft grubs) as well as mosquitoes and it caught 4-5 small spiders when I left it in my basement for a little bit. It seems to like it, as a new pitcher has just popped open, and new leaves are forming. I only ran into problems with the grubs when they were not completely submerged. To avoid this, I usually slice the grubs lengthwise with a razor. This also speeds digestion. Another way is to add a little distilled water to the pitchers to raise the water levels.
