Hello! Whilst I am training for my 2nd Dan black belt in VFT growing, I am a complete Nep n00b, and could use a little help, please. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
I hear these devils are climbers/trailers. At the moment, the Neps I've bought from the shop have no support to speak of, and so are trailing in the water-soaked capillary matting their pots are standing in. A lot of the pitchers are physically in contact with the matting - will this cause them to rot, or do they love a bit of ground contact?
Second bit of advice I could use is what to use as a support frame for them to grow up, in their vine-style capacity. Since the pots I bought them in are so small (really, really small) and don't have enough depth to bury a support frame of any decent size, is this a good time of year to transplant the Neps, so long as I don't disturb the root-mass and use the right compost mix?
