    What a great looking plant! My wife loves it...she wanted one so this was perfect. Good idea with the stuffing of the pitcher. What's your mix...bark, perlite, LFS %? It dry up alot faster than the one i use( LFS/perlite/peat). Thanx alot!

    Hi Marius! Glad it arrived in good shape I only put something in the pitchers like that on larger plants that the peanuts could fit into, littler ones I don't worry 'bout. The mix... hmm... I don't really do mixtures by % so I don't know! Add some peat into what you said above and substitute bark for coconut husk and you have the right items used though. probably somewhere around... peat/perlite/coco husk/lfs 15/30/30/25 The mix holds great amounts of water, but does drain well. So while being wet, there is lots of air. I tend to top water neps using (about) that mix somewhere around every 3 days or so. If it gets too dry between watering just set it in a tray of water for a day and it should get nice and wet again

    How's the progress on your g/h going? Pick a fogger pump? I haven't heard from you about it lately!

    I might try your mix sometime but as long as my LFS or LFS/perlite works i don't bother much....snd i don't have to water for at least a week...it looks good for LL.
    No progress...i found one for 300$ that puts a max of 800psi...i wonder if that works....is there a way you can test that on your system? It would be great to know.
    Best regards,

    I used to use 50/50 lfs/perlite only. LOL still use it a lot, but sometimes mix up something different I don't think I watered your nep for like 3 days before shipping... To keep the weight down, it was just barely under what I charged to ship it- lucky me!

    Yep it has a pressure regulator on it, I can crank it down... Kinda a paint to get to, I'll try though and let you know.

    LOL! I completely spaced the fact that it would require a 12x12x8 box and not a 8x8x7 box :-p
