    Plant it as if it was rooted, and it will root in a few weeks. Use Superthrive if you want.

    I can't comment on that specific brand of fertilizer, but half strength twice a month is good.

    If it contains the added micronutrients zinc and copper, don't use it.

    Well, those may be great for growing pot, I mean tomatoes, but the plants don't need the micro nutrients. Stick to macro nutrients, because zinc and copper are toxic to Nepenthes. Using a fertilizer with micro nutrients, as long as it does not list zinc and copper on the back, is probably OK, but you don't need it. AFAIK no one has done an experiment on that yet.

    The good news is that that stuff is probably expensive, and you can use regular Orchid fertilizer or fish emulsion. Many people use MaxSea and/or Neptune's Harvest. I use Alaskan fish emulsion, personally.

    For fertilizer I use Better Gro Orchid Plus (20-14-13). Use 1/4 teaspoon per gallon every two to three weeks (basically when I remember). Check out this thread for discussion on other ways to fertilize.
