    Hi Dino,

    You do realize that you asked the exact same question as the last post...
    Your question has already been answered in the previous topics. All you have to do is check them. It is really not that hard, since their are only 5 topics(two are yours!) in this section and one is related to Brocchinia.

    Miracle grow potting mix is fine because the plant is not carnivorous. These plants do not grow in poor soils. Germinating Proboscidea is not too difficult. If the seeds are white, just sow them and keep warm. If the seeds are black, GA3 treatment or removing the seedcoat and sowing them in rich soil with warm conditions works well.

    trust me on the miracle gro potting soil ibicella is tolerant of fertilizers. its just like a heliamphora is not as tolerant as lets say nepenthes to a certain chemical ingrediant in the fertilizer or whatever. My plants that i germinated as you heard before are growing really nice and big after some time. IF you still feel like you shouldnt use it then use a 50 percent peat and 50 perlite.`the reason i never questioned it when i got them is because before i never grew cps and all plants were tolerant to miracle grow until i started growing cps in which i learned the hard way with a vft.
