    do you tuck your LFS in (pack it down) or do you just sort of plop it in the pot and let it stay all fluffy? i was wondering if this made a difference and if tucking nepenthes media is a bad idea.

    Why should it be packed down? Just curious. When I look at the live LFS I have growing upward, housing several species of leaf cuttings, the moss is airy / fluffy. Wouldn't that be resembling natural conditions? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I have always packed it down just slightly, mostly to hold the plant in place. I probably don't need to anymore though, since I have to use stakes on the larger plants anyway.

    Doesn't water end up packing it down pretty well anyway?

    I don't have a preference for packing or fluffing spahgnum. It shouldn't be compacted like a brick or fluffed to just a few strands, but, just fill the pot up and plant your Nepenthes.
