    My truncata has some grass growing right in the middle of the plant. Doesnt seem to be doing any harm, but I have to cut the grass every week!! LOL.
    Just wondering if it could be a problem. I am just worried about the roots.
    thanks for any help.

    I have tons of plants growing in with my neps. It doesn't seem to bother them, and i kinda like the look.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    I pull any weeds I have growing, the only other plant I allow to grow in my neps pots are various forms of moss.

    the way i see it, the grass will use any other nutrients that could be detrimental to the Nepenthes.

    Hay, Hellz here,
    yes i agree woth everyone, especially of thos grasses are from LFS, i had to repot a nep once because the grass roots were extremely exstensive, almost choking the poor plant
    just my experience,

    I would stay away from weeds, But i get ferns growing in my moss whitch i dont see any problems with as long as they remain small cause they will stuck most of the water from the plant.

    Is it possible that plants competing with your neps for nutrients could force the neps to produce more pitchers for added nutrients?
    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...
