    Fingers crossed for my N. villosa!

    Finally decided to bite the bullet and repot my big old N. villosa! Its been in its old compost too long and also got jammed in its home in the greenhouse. I should have done it a few years back as the leaves are looking more stressed than I like and pitchering as been few and far between these last few years. The roots did not look too bad though it was a bit disturbing seeing just how thin and woody the original and basal growth gets near the roots. And found a bit of rot as well near that section. Cleaned it up and after washing away all the old compost repotted in a nice fresh mix and repositioned it in the pot a bit better. But still far too soon to tell how it will respond- so fingers firmly crossed!









    cheers

    bill (Now for that N. rajah!!)

    Wow! Well I'll keep mine crossed because we all in the hobby wouldn't want a plant of that size and stature to be lost.

    I grew it from a micro plant from wistuba which I got in 1998.
