    Sweet. The pitcher is a little like a jeuvenile x 'Coccinea' to me. Really nice color. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    As the cutting gains some size, it will produce a more individual pitcher. We grow our Neps a little on the dry side too. Michelle flushes the pots maybe twice a week. Bigger pots even less frequently. Growing them a little dry also helps prevent root rot problems, and stimulates the plant into growing a larger root mass, which makes them tougher.

    Hey Trent,

    Keeping them a little drier than the norm actually also helps in keeping down the amount of pests in the substrate. Also something that i've noticed on more than one occasion, a nep pot that the media does get a little drier in is the perfect establishing grounds for an ant colony.

    I definately agree with the statement on larger root masses. I've tended to start letting seedlings go almost dry every so often just so they put out deeper roots.

    Hey Vertigo,

    Would you mind resizing your avatar - it's too large! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
