    a while ago i noticed some blue green algie on my nep seedlings sphagnum moss & i ignored it but it has gotten worse
    so tonight i did what all loving nep ownas and pool owners would do
    I PUT SALT ON THE ALGIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i know this might affect them for a while but i think it is worth it to have the algie gone [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img] + don't some sp on neps grow next to the beach any ways?
    ohhhhhhh is this a good way to treat it?

    Salt is also a great preservative and pickles things nicely... ie sodium is highly poisonous to most plants. I would flush the pots immediately if it isn't already too late.

    If your referring to some species of Nepenthes growing in white sand.. yes that is true. However it is not the beach next to the ocean..

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
