    What is the point of adding "OK??" to this conversation.....

    Please no chit chat guys, you know that. Nothing is wrong with explaining something, you don't have to reply to every single comment/remark someone makes.

I also hear its very slow growing for a while, especially if in less than ideal conditions. Seems this one will be even more of a challenge to keep happy than N. villosa.
    Keep in mind that N. edwardsiana is EXCEEDINGLY rare in cultivation so anything you hear about its needs is inevitably based on a very limited sample size. Macrophylla and villosa are both very slow growing so it would not surprise me if edwardsiana was as well.. I'd take the comments about needing exceedingly pure water with huge chunk of TDS (grain of salt).

    Just saying what someone's research has proven for them. I also hear their sample size wasn't that small....many many seedlings apparantly. Was in one of the ICPS issues.

    ANd for what it is worth there are more than just that one persons. I happen to know of two other people who recieved seed and they report the same thing. Very picky plants.

    Definition: Removal of ions. The term is generally used with respect to removal of ions from water. Deionization is commonly achieved by passing the water through successive ion exchange columns. In one column, ions are exchanged for H+ ions. In another column, anions are exchanged for OH- ions. Following a reaction of H+ with OH- ions, no ions remain in solution.

    Does that mean Distilled water is safe?
