I start all my ultrics in a sterile mix, mostly to cut down on long term moss growth. Obviously the cultures do not remain sterile for any length of time, but given the density of the traps that eventually result, I wonder if feeding might be appropriate. Does anybody feed utlrics? Would like to hear how you do it, if you feed them. I was thinking that an occasional small application of microworms might work but don't want to invest in the cultures without knowing if that is viable. Thanks

You know you can feed them but you can't be so shure if they catch it. Also the prey must be really small depending on what species you cultivate. I personally fertilize them with a really low dosage of orchid fertilizer that works for me really good

I feed my Alpina and Bisquamata with 1/4 strength MaxSea fertilizer.

I like maxsea for my bladderworts but it can really make the moss grow.
