    I've tried feeding some of my other plants with different brands of slow release fertilizer and thus far, my HL truncata has showed some amazing results. It's newest leaf is almost 2 times as big as the others [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    To the weekend I might be able to take some pictures of it.


    One of my lowii's I fed earlier has also had some good results but nothing like the truncata.


    To the weekend I am also going to install my new lighting system. I was going to buy a 400W MH but had to go with a much cheaper HPS 400W. Anyway that should encourage the plants to grow a little better.


    Hopefully I will also receive my platychila and vogelii to the weekend. Man, I'm gonna love this weekend.

    I find that odd that Neps would like fertilizer.

    They get the nutrients from bugs and are not use to fertilizer.

    Neps are one of the few carnivorous plants that can benefit from a light fertilizing. I have seen definite improvement in my Nepenthes when I have fertilized them. Small, spotted, yellowish leaves where replace with larger green leaves when I fertilized. Too much fertilizer can result in a plant not pitchering though.

    Well my plants does not get enough nutrients from the few bugs they catch. That's easy to tell there for I think fertilizer is a good substitute. The plants have been much healthier since I started using slow release fertilizer.

    The reason we all say no to fertilizer is to make everything easier.. it's alot easier and safer to not use fertilizer than use it without knowledge of whether or not it will be good for it.
