    "All the plants grew in a very wet acidic sandy soil with peat moss and sphagnum (1/2 quartz sand, 1/2 peat moss), completely covered by 2 to 5 cm of water." writes Alexandre Antoine(on www.wistuba.com), talking about N. Madagascariensis. However all the reading I've done on Nepenthes cautions about leaving the roots of the plant covered with water. Has anybody tried reproducing these conditions or similar conditions and with what results?

    I grow N. madagascariensis in true lowland conditions with moist to wet sphagnum moss I haven't experimented with any other soils. Other than that it is pretty striaght forward cultivation. Good luck! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
