Growing Nepenthes macrophylla
We use long fiber sphagnum with a decent amount of kanuma and a bit of perlite. The ratio is roughly 85% long fiber sphagnum moss to 15% soil aerators. Soil should not be compressed, the use of live sphagnum moss as a top dressing will be very beneficial as the plant gets larger.
Plants purchased from us do not need to be repotted for at least 12+ months. N. macrophylla roots are extremely delicate so when the time comes to repot, you should first flush the soil with RO water then only remove soil that appears unhealthy. Leave everything else intact and add enough soil so your plant sits gently in its new pot. Dress the surface with live sphagnum.
Incredibly nice plant and worth every bit! Everything about it came as described and I must say the huge pitcher it has is very beautiful! It was packaged/protected very well and came in a timely manner. Thank you guys so much, I'm very grateful and will be returning my business to you in the future! :)
