    You guys are going to like the photos I took today. The Neps responded very nicely to the coffee feeding.

    N. lavicola, not coffee fed but growing a lot. Hopefully this pitcher develops.

    I love the colors on this little guy. It's going to be incredible when it matures.

    Me too, it's probably my favorite Nepenthes of all time. It's still a small plant, far from mature, but it's still amazing. The colors are going to be jaw dropping when it matures.

    Nice plants! How does one coffee feed a Nepenthes?


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Thanks! It's a lot simpler than it sounds. Just take regular black coffee and pour it over the medium like you would a regular watering. It will dry out faster than a regular watering will, and the excess coffee will be flushed out with the next watering. It shouldn't be done frequently, but sparingly every 6 months. As you can see, it works wonder.
