    Clippin' along...

    This N. clipeata Clone 3 was given a coffee treatment a short while back, to see what might happen. Looks like it decided to reward me with a larger sized leaf.


    Just the leaf alone measures 4 inches long. This plant is potted up into a five inch pot.


    This pitcher has nectar on it that has oozed out and dried. It has the consistency of dried tree sap. When I touch it, it isn't very sticky and doesn't pull away from the plant in thin gooey strands, as I had expected it might.

    Jeeze that is an awesome size gain for the leaf. Coffee very obviously works for you. I did my first coffee treatment about 5 weeks ago, and so far not one of my neps looks any different. How long did it take for you to see results?

    Thanks guys,

    Nightsky, it usually takes around six weeks to a couple of months to start showing results.

    If your growing conditions are already optimal, and if you already fertilize your plants, the coffee might not make much of a difference. It seems to work best with stalled plants with yellowing leaves.

    Likewise, plants grown in suboptimal conditions might not get as much benefit from the coffee, until the lighting, soil media mix and temperature requirements are better met.
