    decaf may or may not have less of the nutrients that will help your plants. this is why i say if at all possible. regular untreated coffee would be my recommendtion but if you want to use decaf, go for it.

    I hate to think what could happen to my Nepenthes fusca if I watered it with coffee. Does this actually work?

    Most of the people who have fertilized with coffee report major growth spurts. I have never tried it, but I will definitely attest to the use of Maxsea fertilizer. I water every Sunday and fertilize with a very dilluted maxsea every other Sunday. Ever since I started this regimen my plants have picked up growth tremendously.

    "Only for Nepenthes..."

    Objection! I poured some coffee on my terrestrial Utricularia to get rid of snails and slugs, which seems to have worked, and also the Utricularia treated this way have had more rapid growth than before.

    Check out this thread. BigBella has some really amazing plants and got great results with coffee. Hope it helps. I just watered my Nepenthes the other day with coffee and flushed it last night...hoping to see good results. Good luck!

    Fertilizer application of any kind is only something you want to do with fully established plants that are growing happily. Pushing unwanted nutrients on a plant that is struggling to acclimate will not help, and in fact may injure the plant.
