    I watered that plant with coffee a few times, several weeks apart. Sorry I can't be more specific about that. I just kind of do things when I feel like it or when I think they need to be done, and I don't always keep track. I have been using caffeinated coffee for this, just taking the leftovers from the pot, and I water the plants with it like I normally do, letting it run through. I haven't been brave enough to use full-strength, so I've been cutting the coffee in half with regular water. I've never used decaffeinated coffee for this, so I don't know if there would be a difference.

    Thanks. That's been a really good grower for me. The pitchers seem to last forever.

    Thanks. I like that one, too, and it's really nice that it seems to thrive as a houseplant.

    amphirion, I was glancing back over the thread, and I just realized you were talking about the N. veitchii in your post. My reply must have seemed a little odd. I apologize. I was in a hurry and for some reason I thought you were talking about the t x v. The veitchii is in my lowland case and it just grew that way. I think that pretty soon it will start to climb.
