    Oops, forgot to add that I have an oscillating fan over all the seeds that are germinating.

    Use either a sand/peat mix or a perlite/peat mix and distilled, RO, DI or rain water. I use a 2:1 mixture of Candadian sphagnum peat moss and pure perlite and distilled and rain water.

    Just a note as I was skimming I saw mention of BOTTLED WATER. You really should avoid using this terminology since any water in a bottle is bottled water. As mentioned purchased water in a bottle should say RO (reverse osmosis), Distilled, Deionized. Do not use Spring water for drinking or any other 'bottled water' that does specify what kind of water! These are not necessarily low in dissolved minerals!

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

    Thank you for responding to my question. I buy distilled water in big milk jugs really not just bottled so my plants are good.

    I heard pumice has too high mineral content; but don't know first hand; have never tried it; I personally think it would be alright. How have yours fared so far?
