    Nepenthes after fed Osmocote

    The size of the new leaf is pretty amazing!

    Nice! I wish more of my Nepenthes were big enough to feed with Osmocote. I am making do with Maxsea for most of them.

    Thats great. By fed do you mean by way of placing the osmocote in the substrate or into the pitchers?

    I feed my Nepenthes with (expired) fish food pellets. It seems to work pretty well and I can cut the pellets in half or even powder them for the smallest of plants.

    N. glandulifera

    N. bongso

    The expired part isn't intentional, but my dad has a little stockpile of these from his saltwater aquarium days.

    Poor Man's Osmocote?

    Nepenthes food

    Poor man's osmocote?

    Nepenthes on a steady diet of Osmocote for 5 years:

    Don't fear--fertilizer is here!

    What you don't see in Kevin's photo is that Kevin has tragically fallen victim of his own spectacular success, and is trapped in the rightmost pitcher, center. If you examine the pitcher closely, you can just make out a shadow of two hands pressed against the pitcher interior, desperately seeking a way back out. Alas, poor Kevin - we knew him well! (yes, I know its a misquote)
