    I use a mix of coconut husk chips/LFS/perlite in roughly a 1:1:1 ratio. For larger pots I may use more of a medium grade chip or larger size perlite. I sometimes also vary the amounts of each a little if I am looking for something with more moss or more perlite for increased drainage etc.

    I find N. burbidgeae does not have a huge root system and hence does not need a very large pot. It also likes a better draining mix and doesn't like to be kept overly wet for prolonged periods.

    If your plant is happy in the LFS then stick with it. I know alot of people that use LFS as their main potting mix and they do very well with it. For my setup with the automatic sprinklers and the wide range of pot sizes it doesn't work for me. It stays too wet.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Ahh man. That's one of the best Burbidgeaes I've seen around. Makes me love the plant even more.

    Tony,

    Can I ask what those red-leaved Nepenthes are? The ones next to the large N. burbidgeae... I hope you don't mind me resurrecting an old thread.
