    I have to get someone to make me some coffee with distilled water. Any instructions u can offer BigB? You certainly have got it down to an art. Just regular coffee machine, ground coffee (anything specifc ..bean type?) and pour the black coffee into pots? I don't drink coffee..so I know very little about making it. LOL!

    I usually make a rot-gut french press of coffee in the morning; either that, or poured through any standard filter. I don't own a coffee machine, per se. I doubt that the beans or particular roast makes one whit of difference, though I drink Italian or French Roast; and there's one local place which sells something called "Heart of Darkness."

    As mentioned earlier, I usually dilute the coffee by half, since it is on the strong side . . .

    so question; i recently repotted my neps due to a serious spider mite infestation. by recently i mean about a week and half ago. how long should i wait before cofeeing. i had done it previously (about 7 months ago), but not sure how long i should wait before applying it after repotting.

    I would wait four to five weeks after any re-potting before I either fertilized or applied coffee; Nepenthes can be a bit touchy from time to time . . .

    Here are a couple of updates, about a month out from that second coffee "treatment." Once again, I have seen far greater progress with the plant growth -- most notably with the otherwise notoriously-slow Nepenthes rajah -- than with simply the use of any 30:10:10 orchid fertilizer.

    So much for my ingrained skepticism . . .

    Nepenthes macrophylla -- September

    Can't believe no one commented on this! The results are really great David! Did you continue using coffee on them?

    I can't believe this was 2 years ago already! Imagine how big the little beasties are now
