You wont! I definitely can't... I'll bet that Panman won't be able to last a month without new seeds. I have a Marston dragon to bet.... :lol:

See what I did just to get seeds as early as I possibly could?

Actually not. Juvenile Sarracenia benefit from a little fertilizer. Take a look at this article:

Sarracenia Soil Fertilization

Yeah they do! You should see Matt’s 1 year old sarracenia, it’s ridiculous compared to 2 year old sarrs that haven’t ever been fertilized!
Did he use osmocote or maxsea?

Then what? I thought that those were the only fertilizers besides fish flakes

Pretty sure you can use any fertilizer you want at low dosage for the carnivores. I’m don’t know the name of the products Matt uses right now, I will have to check tomorrow when I’m in the greenhouse.
