    Unhappy



    Hello to all!
    Boys...tomorrow 19 will be my birthday and I want also to make something nice for my Nepenthes that lies into my terrarium!
    CAN I water on tghe leafes and in substrate some micro elements diluited in osmotic water?
    Just to be clear, I am NOT talking about giving Osmocote or a liquid fertilizer. I am just talking to give into soil and spray on the leafes some micro lements!
    Please do you have some tips to give me and in particular already some experiences?
    And at last oes LIVE Sphagnum tollerate micro elements?
    Thanks...on the picture at top is the composition of what I want to use.It written in Italian but it is not difficult to understand for those ones compatible with this argue!
    The doses are the following : 1 gr of powder diluited in 1 lt of water.What do you think?
    Thanks to all!

    I dunno if those levels are harmful. I don't think they need that supplement.

    Sorry my answer wasn't good enough.

    The fact is :
    we can give fertilizer to nepenthes like pellet of osmocote and plants reacts very nicely! Also because Osmocote contains also NPK + microelements!
    So...in my opinion...without NPK but only microelements Nepenthes soil should not be damaged.
    Let's see if some ********** expert will give me some Help!

    You can use micro and macro if you want. I'd be careful of the zinc though. Maybe those small levels matter, maybe not. Someone else should chime in.

    Oh yeah, Sphagnum moss doesn't like any minerals at all IME, but if you flush every now and then it shouldn't affect the moss.

    Copper is definitely toxic to CPs. If its not toxic at that level, it sure isn't going to help, and will more than likely harm the plant. This is as clear of an answer as you're going to get in that regard.

    If you have something common and dont mind losing that you want to try it on, hey, I'm not stopping you, but its not a good idea
