I was doing some research online about a mystery drosera I have (finally identified!) and I read several articles about feeding a variety of carnivorous plants. Now, I know feeding them isn't a necessity however I have read that it will increase growth and the overall health of many of the plants if they receive the odd tidbit here or there.
I read that freeze-dried blood worms (if ground into a fine dust) can be used to feed drosera and pinguicula. I've also been reading up on various other foodstuffs but this particular one is interesting because I have a tropical aquarium and so have a huge pot of these freeze-dried creepy looking beasties.
I'm wondering: would you recommend this product for carnivorous plants? My droseras don't look too bright and I was thinking maybe if I fed them they would improve their condition, however due to physical incapabilities and the cold weather at the moment I can't go running around catching flies. I'm also wondering if anyone has ever tried giving nepenthes and dionaea freeze-dried bloodworms, and if you have, what were the results?
I'm fascinated and excited that I may be able to share my two prime hobbies amongst each other, and I love the thought of not having to hunt down and catch flies
