    Northiana x Veitchii H/L colorful pitcher

    Helllo all. Today I took some fresh pics of my Northiana x Veitchii H/L newly opened and developed pitcher. This is the first pitcher this plant had formed and opened for me in my care.
    I'm really liking the color this pitcher is showing me. Now I cant wait till the Mixta x Maxima x Veitchii x Northiana x Veitchii growing next to it opens up a pitcher on it. I hope it will be a good one to.

    Simplicity of a pitcher = elegance. very nice.
    Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.

    Thanks Nate. I grow my neps in a mix of LFS, orchid bark, osmunda fiber, perlite and I believe some Washed silica sand as well. Makes for a well drained mix.

    Hmm interesting. It just looks like in the first pic the soil has tons of peat moss in it. But I may have to try ur mix some time. It works very well for you!!!

    lol. It does look like it has alot of peat in it. I think there is also some peat in it. The soil came to me pre mixed from Ron in WA. I mixed extra perlite, orchid bark, and NZ LFS in it when I received the mix. I water my neps every other day. Probably like every second day or so depending on the temps.
    Every day while I'm in the greenhouse, I touch the soil in every pot to feel how moist they are.
