    My N. Alata :)

    Hi everyone

    I just wanted to share some thoughts on the N. Alata that Ellison gave me.

    It currently has 3 large pitchers, and is producing 3 more, by far the fastest producer of the ones he gave me.

    Also, I think it is starting to vine, so I may have to repot it in the next few months.
    I like the idea of using a tomato trellis for these, so I will probably try that.

    I love how the newest leaves lay inside the last leaf until that one opens, then the newest one flips out and over to the other side, Ive never seen a non grass plant do that before, and its way cool to watch

    Anyway, I cant remember the mixture for repotting.
    I know it has a lot of vermiculite, and sphagnum moss, but cant recall if sand or anything else is used.

    What kind of mixture do you guys use?

    I use a mix of orchid bark, charcoal, peat, and perlite fot N.alata.....all in equal amounts by volume.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
