    update on my n. ventricosa

    Ive had this one for a couple years and its still in the same pot and media ,
    not sure if i should repot or leave it , its just started pitchering like wild fire in the past two months, I dont want to disturb it ,
    could i just add some more lfs around the root mass , and move to a slightly larger pot, and wait another year ??.

    I'd just leave it. If your plant is pitchering wildly, it's telling you it likes what it's getting. I'm still in that phase where repotting Neps makes me a wee nervous. I mean I haven't botched anything, but it's still a nervous process for me. People say in a larger pot you can repot every couple years or so.


    I have to seriously congratulate you on such a beautiful plant. I haven't seen an adult ventricosa red yet and mine should hop into the vining stage soon based on what I see in your plant.

    Yeah, that's a beautiful vent. How big are the pitchers?

    I have a red vent also, but man that thing grows slow as molasses, ie a couple inches in 4 years... I don't get it. I could only wish it was doing as well as yours.

    Gorgeous! What's the planting media? Lighting? You must be doing something right!

    Thanks for the nice comments guys
    its just in all LFS, and has been for quite some time , its on the edge of the grow shelf and gets light from 2t-5sHO grow bulbs and 2t-5sHO bloom bulbs, its just not directly under them and it gets room for air all around the plant since its in the orchid basket, it's also in a south window though as summer approaches , it gets very little direct light from the sun, as it rises higher over the house for the next few months. the flo. lights are on for 13 hours a day, and i mist twice a day, probably too much LOL , but this is the only water it gets. I mist the plant and the media , and i keep the media close to dry ,but never dry via the misting .
