    I bought some orchid fertilizer. It's Jack's classic from J.R. Peters, Orchid special 30-10-10 with micronutrients water soluble plant food. After I bought I started getting worried if it was ok to use or not. I have never used fertilizer on any of my cp's. Is this ok to use on my nepenthes and other cp's?

    I seriously woundn't recomend using a water soluable fertilizer, because slow release types like osmacote are much less likely to overfertilize and last up to six months before another application is needed. But if you really want to try using that fertilizer, use it on your least valuable Nepenthes in extremely small amounts. Oh, and let us all know the results.
