    Does anyone know of a local Portland garden store that carries suitable potting material for nepenthes? I just had a brain fart and ordered a plant before I had soil to put it in. Sorry to muddle up the thread with off topic stuff, but I figure this is where I can get the most attention from portlandites.

    Neps are not my first love nor my real strength but when I do grow them I use a mix of medium orchid bark and long-fiber sphagnum moss with maybe a bit of peat moss added. The first and last I buy from my local Fred Meyer's gardening dept. The lfs I buy off the internet as it is hard to get good quality locally though the cheap stuff might be just fine in this application and my local Lowe's carries it. There are certainly other recipes for Nepenthes mix some of which might be better for you depending on your conditions. 'Hope this helps some. I'm sure you could do better asking others at the meeting next weekend as we have several accomplished nep growers who regularly attend.

    A week from tomorrow, on Sat. the 13th, will be our December meeting. 'Just wanted to remind those intending to come that it is coming up. Fun will be had.

    I feel a little regretful that we have had such awesome plants show up in months past and no pictures were taken. I am going to start photographing the plants that are brought and post the photos here. This ought to make this thread a little more interesting, which should be good news to everyone.

    Just a quick reminder that the meeting is tomorrow at 3. I'll be the one furtively staring into my gin and tonic.
    Truth as Circe. Error has transformed animals into men; is truth perhaps capable of changing man back into an animal?

    And, no doubt, sitting behind some mind-blowingly cool Nepenthes plant.
