    first pitcher opening up!

    Not exactly the most glamorous Nep species out there but after several failed pitchers that stayed small and shrived this one is finally got to a good size and is opening!

    Woot! I would move it to a sphagnum mix if possible, though.

    Hey grats. It's great watching how the pitchers progress with each new one. You'll be hooked.

    I do have some sphagnum still. Would it appreciate 100% LFS?

    And I would keep it far away from sphagnum. Is that a peat moss mix it is in? I wouldn't use peat moss either.

    I doubt it, especially if you have it sitting in water.
