I found a L. hesperus in my house last night thanks to the gremlins ganging up on it. I figured I didn't have time to escort it out before one of them got bit. Long story short, it's dead and in a centrifuge tube. What should I feed it to? Right now the only plants big enough for the whole thing are my sarracenia, but I could probably give parts of it to one of the drosera, or the vft. Ideas?

I'd need to break it up they're pretty tiny. I'm also not starting dormancy until mid November, so idk if that's a consideration. As a side note I spilled some of the water on my fingers yesterday. Not recommend, very irritating.

You can see the largest trap here is no bigger than the tip of a thumb.Image

Well, the enzymes and bacteria in the stew pretty much dissolved the spider. I gave a leg to the widow and the rest of anything I could find to my S. x Yellow Jacket. Everything has been fed save for the Heliamphora, Nepenthes, and unsprouted seeds. I can say without a doubt the smell was awful. Round one with the soup did really well, so I'm hoping round 2 shows as much promise. I've still got a month and a half before most of my plants go dormant. I've got more pictures but tapatalk capped me.

The yellow jacket has been doing really well since that feeding. It's even started a new growth point! I can't attribute it all to the spider, but it certainly didn't hurt!Image
