    Hey this is kind of off topic but you guys may have some insight. Is the Portland tap water ok for Nepenthes? I live in SW, not on the Clackamas watershed which is fine.

    I haven't personally tested the water on the west side, but the water from Bull Run, which is what we get in the NE, is very soft and perfectly fine for these plants.

    Once again, it is only one week until our next meet-up at the Moon and Sixpence. If you're new to our get-togethers the time is 3:00 PM on Saturday Nov. 8. For directions see the first posts on this thread. Last month was a ton of fun! Everyone interested is welcome. Come meet friendly people who are carnivorous plant nuts like you are.

    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.
