one of those little packets from the local florist in their water

or, a teaspoon of sugar in their water. clear, non-diet soda pop works
too. but mixed in the water, not straight. probably caffeine-free is
best, but I'm not really sure about that

also avoid caffeinated beverages if it's a flesh-eating plant.

okay, maybe just stick to that second paragraph and ignore the rest of
the blather
