Wrong potting mix for nepenthes??

May 29, 2021
Hi everyone,

I've got a Ventrata and a Gaya and have had them for 2 or 3 months now...

They took a couple of weeks to settle but are now growing really well with lots of new pitchers.

Having been reading as much as I can about them, I'm now concerned I've potted them in the wrong mix, even though they're growing well.

I used a lining of spagnum with the main mix being Carnivorous Plant Repotting Mix in the middle (see photo).

Am I better to repot them in something else? I'm worried that repotting them again will put them back and they'll drop their pitchers...

They'll fine, no need to worry and no need to repot them. Never heard its before, but its labeled as "carnivorous plant repotting mix" so at least its low minerals. And those 2 species are fine with wet mix. Some nepenthes species do need loose and drier mix, but not with those 2 and other common species.
