    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Ha! Ha! Joe. We're not in the employ of Osmacote, honestly! But you really should try it on your breakfast cereals, adds that extra crunch, much better than insects which tend to go soggy in the milk... and as a ball bearing substitute, or even as a hair restorer - ask Tony. I know someone who ate nothing but a 20-20-20 balanced Osmactoe diet for a month and lost a lot of weight...

    Now I'm gonna get sued by someone whose kid tries it with their morning cereals and poisons themsleves. Absolutely DO NOT do this - it tastes awful! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    There were several replies to your questions. I don't think anyone else answered because most would agree with the previous replies.

    The problem with windowsill growing is that no two windowsills are alike. Your environment can be drastically different than the house right next door to you. They can even be drastically different from a windowsill in one part of the house to a different windowsill in the same house. Also worth mentioning that windowsill environments can fluctuate dramatically from one day to the next and one season to the next. What might work for you during several months might turn to out to not work during another portion of the year. Growing on a windowsill is hit and miss and highly experimental. I have grown a number of Nepenthes on my East and West windowsills at the house. Some times of the year they did fine other times not so fine.. sometimes they just up and died. They never did as well as they could have though, often spending much of the better part of the year (Spring/Summer) recovering from the cold and dry Winter. Maybe you will have better results on a year round basis since your climate is different than mine but do you really want to risk a (currently) very hard to get and expensive Nepenthes species on a windowsill?

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

    That plant could win a prize at any show. Pitcher coloration is top notch too IMO.

    What's it potted in? I thought the moss is a top dressing but it's poking out of the bottom of the pot too.

    Madmax.. I have had the plant since Oct./Nov. 2002. They were about 1.5" diameter at the time.

    Rob.. that is just some secondary moss growing on the surface. Never had any until I started using slow release fertilizer. Now it is everywhere to the point where it is growing on the potting mix at the drainage holes too. Can be a bit of a problem at times as it is very fast growing. The plant itself is potted in my normal mix of small coconut husk chips, perlite, and NZ Sphagnum (cut up a little) about 1:1:1 roughly, along with just a touch of peat to make it just a little more soil like.
