Also they get filtered sunlight because the are up under a tree and i use my bore water and i think it is a bit acidic. maybe i could move them into a terrarium or something like that
    At the very least, what's the weather been like over the past week? What's the local weather report been saying?

    Stranger the temperature this month so far has ranged from a minimum of 18 C/64.4 F to a max of 28 C/ 82.4 F. And im guessing the humidity has been ranging between 50 and 90%.

    Hmm... those sound (in my relatively inexpert opinion) fine to me.

    Aside from the possibility of your soil having fertilisers of some kind I'd say we'll need pictures.

    You need to click on the uploaded photo's thumbnail and get the photo url. Then, using the option "Insert Image" on the forum, paste the url into the pop-up window. Before you post, you can click "preview post" to make sure the image has successfully been linked.

    N. Miranda


    N. Maxima x Lowii


    N. Truncata


    N. Alata


    I think the N. Alata is too far gone, Also should I send the photos of what they use to look like? One of the things that is annoying me the most is that the pitchers and tendril closest near the tip is shriveling before they are even developing.

    I just found the orchid mix i used and it says that it contains Calcium and enough controlled release fertilizer to last 12 months. The mix is Osmocote orchid mix.

    Yeah, I'd repot those plants ASAP, think you're right on the alata though. Personally I use a mix of long fibre sphagnum, perlite and plain orchid bark in about a 1:1:2 ratio, other people have their own preferences though.

    How long have they been in that soil? When you repot them a picture of the roots would be interesting to see.
