    I didn't get the chips though. I got the fiber . If that changes anything .

    Ohh ok.. I haven't used the shredded fiber. I would think that it won't hold as much moisture but it may compact more? So something to keep it more open might be good?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I am always a firm believer that you can never have too much drainage and air flow in your Nepenthes potting mix! Of course if you end up having to water every 30 minutes that might be a bit excessive.. so there is a balance to be struck.

    I'll let you know how successful it is. I'm also going to use a top layer of coconut, instead of LFS. Keeping the LFS alive and non-algea like is a chore for me.
