Hello folks. Just curious for a long lasting medium for my nepenthes. My current mix I highly peat and I think it might be the reason for the decline of my treasured truncata. It is a rather large plant and I have had it potted in the same huge pot for about 3 or more years now. I thought it was the winter that caused it's decline bug I don't think that is the case anymore. I don't like repotting nepenthes due to very fragile root systems. It proved fatal to some nepenthes to repot. I don't care for LFS in my area because it breaks down and compacts so easily then doesn't hold water well. Lost a few nepenthes that way. Then I am back to repotting again.
What I would like is a recipe for your mix. Like 3 parts this 1 part this and so forth. I am thinking a heavy sand mix might be good. Like 3 parts sand to 1 part peat. I don't like perlite because it floats and plants stay outside during the summer. I am just at wits end. I hope I can repot all these plants in time so they can rebound. I have 3 bogs yet left to do and they take some time to do to make sure plant and tags are correct. Wow it sure is easier to keep up with it rather than putting it off.
Thanks everyone! I feel like I am relearning a lot this go around.
