Basic Nepenthes Grow Guide :
Lighting : Place your new nepenthes somewhere which receives at least 3 hours of direct sun. Most Nepenthes can be grown in a greenhouse, windowsill, terrarium or grow tent. They will thrive outdoors with 50% shade or anywhere that receives full morning sun or evening sun.
Watering : Never use tap water, chlorinated water or water with high mineral content. Always use reverse osmosis, distilled or purified water. Be sure to keep the soil moist at all times, a typical 6-8 inch hanging basket usually needs water twice a week. For faster growth you can use Maxsea Fertilizer diluted to 50% strength once a month. On your next watering, Flush the soil with fresh water to ensure excess salts do not accumulate.
Temperature : Highland Nepenthes enjoy daytime temperatures in the 70's or 80's with a 10 degree drop during nights. These can become acclimated to slightly warmer or cooler temperatures with age or optimal humidity levels to support varience in temperatures.
Soil : Everyone has their own "perfect blend" but for most varieties we use a blend of chopped new zealand long fiber sphagnum, canadian peat moss, coco coir, horticultural sand and perlite. This mix is then topped with sphagnum blended with canadian peat & coir. Live sphagnum if possible. A "standard mix" would be 1/3 Chopped NZ Sphagnum, 1/3 Peat Moss, & 1/3 Perlite blended together
