    Coral has done nothing to my lowland neps. I use like 1/3 coral in my x Caesar and like 1/2 coral in my Bicalc.

    They're growing very well.

    There are many many factors which can vary slightly from one person to another. So what may work well for one may not work well for another. Type of water and water quality, frequency and amount of water, other potting mix ingredients and amounts, fertilizer applications and type and method or lack thereof entirely. All these things and more come together and this is the net result your plant has to deal with. Trial and error are important along with careful observation in the quest to grow your plants better and better.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I have used coral with pings before but never neps.

    Sorry to hear about your plant.

    Aw, Thanks PAK....I kinda miss having a healthy N. madagascariensis around, but I'm thinking that now I'll get a seedgrown one - BE origin.

    But Hey, It's all about experimenting and learning.

    Ah, someone after my own heart! Be prepared for some failure, a little ridicule, and eventual success!
