    Ah ha! Finally someone who is also using diatomite. Lets see how this substratum works for Pings. I have tried it (pure without any other additives) on a Nep. rafflesiana fresh out of TC. So far, it is looking pretty good. Pitchers form consistantly even though it is out of TC for only one month.

    That's perlite. Fill a plastic container with an inch of perlite, wrap some live sphagnum (GENTLY) around the roots of the ping and place the plant on the perlite.

    Keep water up to perlite layer, not more. There's no need to keep the perlite flooded 'cos as long as it is wet, the sphagnum will absorb water from it.

    Hehe. I've lost enough pings to DECLARE THIS the BEST cultivation method for Singapore. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]

    guqin's right...keep them drier and you'll be surprised they'll do perfect.

    Cindy: do you grow that ping in a terrarium under lights?
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Used to but it was weak. Then I put it at my windowsill facing east to get the morning sun from 7-10am. It flowered then split up into four! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It get pinkish during the brighter months. Now it's back to the usual green.

    They have very short roots compared to the other CPs. The inch of perlite is just to keep a certain level of water available for the plant.

    Good thing about perlite is that there's plenty of air spaces inbetween.
