I have a very young N. hamata that isn't doing the best right now. It came from a company (that shall remain un-named) that likes to plant its CPs in a shredded bark of some kind. It seems airy enough, but the fact is that it's quite difficult to guess when it has lost its moisture. This makes watering somewhat of a hassle and I'm sure the plant is suffering because I'll often let it go on the dry side to avoid rot.
My big question: What's the best soil mix for N. hamata? I was thinking about purchasing some live LFS and planting it in that, since that's really easy to keep track of when it comes to watering.
