    Hello

    I just wondered if there is anyone out there currently cultivating N. tenuis?

    Have you noticed any tricks for growing this plant?

    thanks

    Jeremiah,

    N. tenuis grows well as intermediate plant and isn't difficult. I had my plant growing in pure LFS which my plant didn't like. The roots were too wet and didn't develop well and it stopped pitchering. I now have repotted it into my standard mix and it seems to be growing much better.

    Matthias has a massive plant being 80 cm in height which he showed in the German CP-Forum:

    I'm growing my N. tenuis in nearly 100% peat and it is growing great. Isn't difficult at all and grows very fast, producing pitchers on every leaf!

    thanks for your help.

    and one other quick question, does anyone still have those photos of N. tenuis that Andreas Wistuba posted here?

    thanks again

    Wow, what a cool plant. I hope that more become available, Wistuba is the only one selling them and he is sold out, and they are expensive!!! I hope they get cheaper

    Hi Julian,

    What I typical use is a mix of equal parts:

    - Quartz sand (the more coarse one)
    - shreded kork pieces (~2-4mm)
    - Lecaton 3mm (burned clay pellets) - about two parts
    - peat (depending on the rest I may use two parts peat)

    when available also:

    - chopped living long fibred sphagnum
    - lava rock for some species when available
    - charcoal for garden purpose (~2-4mm)
    - loam

    I do not use vermiculite or perlite for my nepenthes.

    Hi Joachim
    I use LFS for all except a few which i use oak leaf mould and spagnum peat. Ive thought about using those clay pellets before do you find that they help with drainage?
    Bye for now julian
