Is all purpose insect poison like sevin dust toxic to carnivorous plants. I was dusting my non carnivorous vegies with it and I accidentally sprayed some in my water reserve. before I use the water I want to know if it is safe first.

You should be fine. While I wouldn't use that specific insecticide to treat CP's, a little in the water shouldn't hurt anything.

Just to be safe, how big of a water reserve are we talking about and how much did you spray in there?
