    Nepenthes 'Peter D'Amato' update pics

    its been slow acclimating but is now producing two new basals both of which are starting to produce pitchers, and the main vine is also producing its first pitcher for me and it looks like another is starting to inflate

    Looking great. One of the better hybrids, imo.

    Looking great! Keep me in mind if you ever need to prune off a basal

    If you don't mind me asking - what's your potting mix? It looks like bark and perlite?

    fir bark chips, dead LFS, some charcoal chips and some large perlite pieces , basically the same as i grow my orchids in except for the dry LFS, I also always wrap the roots in some live sphag when I first pot them on arrival, not sure if it makes a difference, but i usually have pretty good luck acclimating most neps. i have heard the live sphag does tend to grow aroung the roots and can cause problems but so far i haven't experienced this.
