    I recently purchased N. Northiana (5 minutes ago) and I was wandering what the best soil mix is for this species or the soil mixes that have worked for you and any other helpful tips in its cultivation.

    I hate to seem self-promoting, but there is some information about this
    on my website, here.
    Moreoever, I've written a detailed article about my experiences with this species,
    which I hope will appear in the December issue of the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter.
    If you are not yet a member of the International Carnivorous Plant Society, and therefore
    a recipient of this journal, I recommend that you become one. Click on the following link
    for more information: ICPS.

    Jeff, No harm in linking to cultivation information on your website.

    Very good info Jeff! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Virus, all the stories told about an alkaline media are false Northiana may grow on limestone outcrops but is always rooted in some sorta of debris/soil/sphagnum moss that is acid and nutrient devoid err devoid of nutrients.
