    Hi. all my Nep. are in their preferred soil, except two. these are the neps. that I "Rescued" from osh. and is the same plant in "Unknown Nepenthes"(acually, there was two, but they look exacly alike pitchers and all.) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] but they were in pure packed peat, and the soil drains very slowly. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] any of you have a special soil mix so I can keep them alive? and what size of a pot should I transplant them into?Thanks,

    I have never transplanted a Nep. before and I an kinda nervous...any special way to do this? will root shock kill them? Do I need to wash off all of the peat before I transplant them?
    Please everyone reply I do not want to lose these Special Neps! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] They are unknown and might be very rare! (even if it isn't rare it is a living thing.) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Here is Spectabilis 73's picture of his Nepenthes hybrid.

    Cannot post the pic but here's the URL to the pic.

    Unknown Nepenthes

    Looks like it has some Veitchii in it.

    Geocity's will not link pics so you must post the hyperlink to the picture site.

    spectabilis73, take the Nep. out of the pot pull as much moss from around it until you see some of the roots showing. then place it into your potting mix that you have made up. you will want to leave the moss around then root to prevent it from going into shock in the new mix. hope that help

    It looks pretty similar to the pitchers on my N.x Judith Finn (spathulata x veitchii). Does your mystery plants persitome turn red or purple after the lids open fully?
