    I put a pellet in the soil with cephs, and yes directly into the nep pitcher, but don't overdo it. It's pretty concentrated stuff.

    I may be wrong, but typically with any sort of prolonged release pellets, take care about not acutally breaking the pellet. The rate of release is generally dependent/standardized with intact pellets. The increased surface area of a broken pellet can totally change the release kinetics and suddenly you may be overfertilizing your plant.

    Is there a size/age limit of nepenthes that can take these?

    I have a couple neps that I would love to start feeding but Im not sure if theyre large enough yet.

    I would start fertilizing at 3~4 inch tall pitchers. I'm experimenting with a method I discovered at ( can't say where). I add an absurd amount of osmocote to a single pitcher, killing it. The pitcher absorbs as much nutrients as it can. Sacrifice for the greater good i guess.

    You can start much smaller than that if you find a pellet small enough.
