    I am trying an experiment with vft soil. I am going to grow my spare vft in a regular traditional 50/50 peat perlite soil. Then one week later im gonna add about 10-15% regular house plant soil. Another week later 20-25% more house plant soil. Then the one week later im gonna add 40% house plant soil. Finally last week ( if it survives) im gonna do a 50/50 miracle grow soil and perlite and see what happens. Ill update with photos. >;-D

    It will most likely die, not from the nutrients in the soil but from disturbing the roots too often. If I were you, I wouldn't waste my spare VFT.

    Maybe, but what if I was more patient and repotted it every 6 months insted of every week. Also the plant was a half dead bonus plant from home depot.

    YOU WILL KILL YOUR PLANT.

    It's also cruel and you may well be shunned by all us VFT loving folks. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Hey, but I can appreciate the concept of an experiment. My plants hold another opinion, of course. Then again, not all of mine have been failures. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
