    In my case, the overdue R/O was infusing my perlite with salts....! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Will respond to the 'experiments' later. I have read it but need to reread it.

    I can totally believe something like a worn out RO membrane causing more of an issue than horticultural perlite.

    Anyway.. Nice Picture WildBill.
    Here is a quick one I snapped yesterday:

    Sorry I forgot to take measurements but off the top of my head I would estimate the plant at 8-10" and the pitcher 3". They do open up a light color, particularly on the peristome and darken as they age.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Salt absorption and release follow the basic facts of osmosis and diffusion. Almost anything with salt in it can be desalted if put in RO water and leave it for a day or so. All the salts will come out of the perlite back into the water.
