Hardly at all. Maybe an occasional fly that I get a hold of and want to torture
Trapping mechanisms, although necessary for their survival, are actually not very efficient anyways which is why they aren't the best pest removal tools out there. But I love the plants anyways!
You can manually feed if you want, and some people have used "fish food" before like some liquified bloodworms...but I've never done that and my plants seem to do just fine with what they get sitting in water on a grow rack. There are also ways to safely fertilize the growing medium without going overboard, which would otherwise kill the plants, but I can't say I know of any off the top of my head that are safe for Drosera...some Nepenthes growers use coffee beans.
