    It can be a bit of a choking hazard for smaller plants. Certainly once plants are of a moderate size (the truncata is that that point) they aren't at risk, but these mosses can somewhat stop up the soil and reduce aeration which is bad for Nepenthes, and they don't have the redeeming aerating or water-retaining qualities that sphagnum has. They're freeloaders.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Update time. Things have been growing and I was finally feeling active enough to take some pictures. Starting with the plant in the lower right corner.

    The Lowland/Über humidity chamber



    Nepenthes King Tiger X Mirabilis Developing pitcher

    Nepenthes King Tiger X Mirabilis Developing pitcher



    Rewind 2 weeks, this pitcher was developing. (King tiger)








    Then today. The biggest and most colorful pitcher yet. (King Tiger X Mirabilis)






    The Basals on this plant are absolutely incredible.


    Handsome Devil. Perhaps Ill name this plant Sauron.


    Nepenthes Truncata


    Nepenthes Hamata. Leaf size is exponentially increasing.



    Nepenthes Attenbouroughii


    The smallest pitcher of any plant to date.



    One of my moss cultures. Very fluffy and green indeed.



    Chilean "Orchid Moss". Another moss culture I have that is in progress. The deeper red chunks I placed on the left,
    While leaving the golden blonde pieces on the right. Results in 1-2 months pending.












    Unidentified guest in the pygmy patch.


    Sarracenia Oreophila Seedlings


    Sarracenia Jonesii Seedling. Lone Survivor




    Drosera Scorpioides.I received 7 of these in gemmae form a few months ago. They ALL browned and perished, except one.
    This one has been growing at a snails pace for weeks, even though the gemmae body has completely
    browned. One other grew 3 centimeters tall, but then perished, leaving the legacy to this final scorp.
    If the USPS hadnt goofed, there would be no scorps to even speak of right now. Thank you Natch!









    A small white root has dropped under the sprout of greenery. God speed little bugger.



    Nepenthes Spectabilis "Giant" Form. This little guy finally decided to throw out a secondary pitcher.
    Looks like hes gonna make it.



    A close up.



    Brightness Turned Down. The pot of the largest pitcher is VERY dark in color. This leads me to believe
    That this seedling has been catching the extremely small insects I occasionally see when working with this
    particular moss pit. A micro environment fully functional with predators. Fascinating.



    The final leg of this expedition brings us to the Starfire Aloe.
    The colors are striking and im greatly anticipating the new growth's color.




    Any questions?

    I couldnt have done it without you guys.
    I haven't been around much, but is there a thread where you talk about your mister/fogger? Is it homemade? I would like to read more about it and the process, if that is what you were referring to in this post. Looks very nice.

    Feb 18 14. The pitchers have opened fully.





    Strange pattern variation.











    Central Growth node of the chimera.





    Nepenthes King Tiger X Mirabilis 'Kuraburi' Finally getting very large. beautiful red coloration too.






    Nepenthes Attenboroughii seedlings



    Tiny pitcher. These guys are almost more toothy than the hamata.


    Nepenthes Hamata
