    n. burkei update

    its been 7 months since i gave this nep coffee.
    It is my first nep., and was so weak and puny for a very long time but after the coffee, it has been growing and producing, fairly nice pitchers for months , im thinking its time for another treatment , the pitchers are now reaching three inches , man it took for ever to get here , but all the growth and pitcher making only happened since the coffee. before that the pitchers were almost solid white and less than 1/4", and that was all it produced for nearly a year and a half,
    IMHO ,its becoming a real beauty now .

    Forget being humble; your plant is beautiful, Jimmy, and mine haven't even sent out their Summer pitchers yet . . .

    That looks awesome! Can you say more about the "coffee treatment"? I've seen this mentioned a couple of times, but don't know anything about it.

    I do it to every single one of my neps when I get them in. I flood the pot with 8oz. of room temp. coffee. Let it drain well.. then do it again every 4-6 months. Results are stellar!
