    I have a few nepenthes and was wondering about giving them fertilizer. I know they are picky about fertilizers . Should i even fertilize them ? I have a orchid plant food that i use for my orchids the formula for it is 19-31-17. I will be heading up to lowes today so i was wondering if i should pick up a better fertilizer what is the proper fertilizer or what do you use? Thanks in advance.

    Fertilizers work ok for some people, but I just never use them. just risky and you have to buy it. I'd say just feed your plants, it helps alot and its more fun.

    Well to begin lowes is most certainly not the place to be buying a high quality fert.
    Try your local hydroponics store, theres one in every town just about.
    Dynagrow would pobably be your best bet, 7-9-5.
    Just cut the dosage in half or if your really worried in fourths.
    Peace
