    Those are some results. The sphagnum seems to have responded well to the coffee.

    Thank Mr. T.
    The sphagnum really took off, and I had to keep pulling strands of it out of the villosa pot so it wouldn't bury the plant.

    So all you do is take the left over cold coffee and grids,then just poor it into the pot once a month? and you don't have to take out the left over coffee grinds out of the pot.

    Here I have been pouring leftover coffee out like a sucker! I am going to try this on my sanguinea and a few other ones I can spare to lose.

    I just poured the leftover cold coffee through the pots until it came out the bottom. Only the coffee was used and not the coffee grounds. I only poured the coffee through one time, and that was six months ago. And all of my Neps got the treatment, and none of them suffered. So it is probably safe to say that one treatment once every six months or even yearly won't harm the plants.

    Truthfully, just like those new truncata I am so eagerly awaiting, Neps like their java black.

    JUSt use the old coffee. The liquidy stuff. Just the actual black coffee drink is used for fert'ing Grinds can be used, but often promote bacterial/fungal flushes without proper care.
