    Swords - I use it with practically every kind of cp! Around here they call it cherry-granite-turkey-grit.

    It works wonders with my reniformis.

    Granite is supposed to have some sort of minerals in it that are good for neps, too.

    USE IT.

    uhhhh granite is pretty chemically stable.....not sure what minerals a plant could pull out of it......the stuff that can be pulled out is in such low quantities your plants prolly wont notice it.....or atleast you wont notice a difference in your plants...............

    granite is cheap......one of the most commonly available stones which is why its so popular as a building material....or it was.......got tons of it here though none of it bedrock......it was pushed down here from the Canadian Shield with the glaciers......

    Haha... ... but turkery grit IS granite. So it is cheap.

    Rattler - I could've sworn there's a link on pitcherplant forum about the minerals in it. I just spent half an hour (no kidding) trying to use their crappy search function.

    there is a slight amount of iron, calcium and other stuff available but they are in very, very small amounts.........they will pull far more of that stuff from the bugs in their pitchers

    I wouldn't have thought of using it for CPs, I was just looking for something to use on my cacti and succulents that was cheaper and heavier than the aquatic plant soil and won't ever degrade/rot/hold too much water.

    When potting Cps in it do you mix it with LFS or peat or just use it straight?

    No worries about how much nutes are or aren't in there, I almost always add a 1/2 tea spoon or half capful of Dyna-grow Bloom to each gallon of my watering water since it's got a full banquet of all the minerals. Dyna-grow has their own product like this turkey grit called "Dynastone" but no shops I know of carry it, even the ones who sell their fertilizers don't carry the stone. But I doubt it could get much cheaper than the cherrystone. I'll have to repot a few extra plants in just cherrystone and see how they do.
