    I flush pots every watering. That's how I water with every watering. I even flush my sarrs but less frequently because they are constantly in water.

    If you happen to let your pots dry out and tried to only water with ten mls your plants would be in decline.

    You cannot over water in one sitting. You over water by watering too frequently. The thing is, my nepenthes are in a GH with misters that come on everyday. I water every two days or so. Sometimes longer. But the pots never dry out.

    I water with tap water. 80-90 ppm.

    My only response to that is that I live in CA. 'Nuff said.


    I flush my Nepenthes when I water, too. They are not sitting in a tray of water. The LL'ers are on egg crate and the HL'ers are on gravel. They seem to be happy. The Sarrs get flushed when I top water, about once a week or so. Unless I get lazy and just add water to the tray.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Since my Nepenthes are not sitting in trays, they're flushed every time I water, which is about every two or three days. Great for keeping the media aerated.
