yeah but VFT get their nutrients from the bugs they eat so I will be using pure distilled water
In theory..it could work.
but in practice, I doubt it..
yes, VFTs grow in very wet conditions..but they can also be TOO wet!
how would VFTs react having their roots constantly submerged in water?
I dont know..
but long term, I dont think they would be happy..
the bigger question, in my mind, is "why bother"??
scott............my guess in active growth they would not care.......if dormant, likely lead to rot............my active growth one is usually sopping wet.........
Well you do realize that because it says hydroponically does not mean it is sitting in water all the time. There usually is a timer and they only get watered so often. Normally they are grown in rock wool or some other kind of material that does not break down. So with VFT you would not need to use mineral enhanced water but rather just RO water. I think even in practice it could work.
You will degrade stone and clay based medias faster but you plants will love ya for it.
What type of set up are you using?
#1 You don't have to water as often.
#2 Increased root oxygenation.
#3 Pest elimination is easier and cleaner.
#4 Human and pet safe strong systemic anti fungals with a lower risk of soil build up.
#5 Your not helping to destroy a peat bog.

I have a Nepenthes 'Judith Finn' that has been in S/H (semi-hydro) for about a month now. I was curious if would work since I grow all of my orchids this way, and it has put a new pitcher.
