As mentioned previously, Cephalotus lure and catch mainly ants and small insects. These are the ideal food for your Cephalotus. However, those of you who grow your plants in a terrarium or enclosed environment can supplement their diet with captured prey. Many growers, including myself, have found that feeding Cephalotus with too large a meal can cause the pitcher to rot.

I feed my Cephalotus small amounts of the following: Ants (ideal natural food but difficult to collect), dried Ant eggs (I find these work well), Crickets (go for the pin head or small sizes), woodlice/pillbugs, no more than once every 4 weeks.
Vibrating/shaking the pitcher after feeding I find helps digestion.

Chemical feeding via the roots is not usually recommended, but, I've tried air-plant foliar feeding to good effect and seaweed extract at 1/4 strength every 4 weeks during the summer months as a foliar spray to give a pitcher boost - just don't overdo any feeding and if in doubt - don't!
I do not do any form of feeding during the resting/winter months.

Chemical feeding via the pitcher works well. I use 1/4 strength orchid fertiliser or 30:10:10 and one drop of Superthrive per 4 litres of water and fill the pitchers with this solution every 4 weeks.

For those of you who can't resist experimenting on your plants - me included - I've listed below various other growth enhancers, chemical feeds and snake-oil preparations along with the results I experienced. I am also this year trialling various other fertilisers/growth enhancers/chemicals etc and will update this page when the results are in.

Miracle-Gro Concentrated Liquid Ericaceous Plant Food - foliar spray 1/10 strength every month during growing season.
Result - growth spurt within 3 weeks.

OGP - foliar spray 1/4 strength every month during growing season.
Result - growth spurt within 5 weeks.

Fulvic Acid - foliar spray 1/20 strength every month during growing season.
Result - disastrous loss of plants within 2 weeks from root rot.

Nitrozyme - foliar spray 1/4 strength every month during growing season.
Result - increased number but not size of non-carnivorous leaves.

Superthrive - foliar spray 1 drop per 4 litres every 6 weeks during growing season.
Result - No noticeable change. No harm to plant observed.

Mycorrhiza fungi - foliar spray at manufacurers recommended dilution every month during growing season.
