    Osmocot or miracid both works or seaweed extract.
    Use miracid half or a quarter strength. I sponge it on usually.
    I have used say half strength without problems and I added some 50% hydroponics fertilizer that is made from all kinds of disgusting organic stuff that has micro and macro ingredients,

    FWIW, maybe try some orchid fertilizer? I use it in the summer on my unknown nep and it seems to like it. I just spray it on the leaves and try not to get any on the roots.

    I use orchid fertilizer religiously. The roots are the place to put it. Attempting to foliar feed Nepenthes is a waste of time. If you're spraying it on the leaves, you're really spraying it on the petiole. Ergo, it's not surprising that foliar feeding this genus does next to nothing.

    I feed Schultz Orchid at full strength (1/4 tsp in 1 gal water) once every 2 weeks. I just water all my plants with it until water drips out the bottom.

    but then you have to repot more,
    and I use the coconut husk stuff that will turn to sludge when I fertilize.
    and sphagnum will turns mushy also.
    that is why I would rather fertlize the pitchers cause then I wouldn't have to flush my pots.

    Sheesh can we get at least a passive attempt
    at proper punctuation and capitalization?
    And what's with that structure in your posts?
    Are you trying to write a haiku?

    but then you have to repot more,
    Who told you that? I've had plants in the same pots that have been getting fertilizer for an awful long time, and they certainly don't seem to mind.

    and I use the coconut husk stuff that will turn to sludge when I fertilize.
    and sphagnum will turns mushy also.
    Then use something else. Sphag isn't great and coco husk is one of the worst media choices around. Or, just flush your pots, it's really not that hard.

    I'm starting to feel like I repeat the same stuff OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I've said the same thing about fertilizer at least 3x this week, yet it keeps being brought up. Do people just not read my posts or what?
