After all the fear of cutting off old pitchers
not knowing what would happen I finally did it, A few weeks ago I repotted my Nepenthus 'Alata' after finally finding silica sand(pool supply store) and mixing a batch of soil found on a great site for pitcher plants
, but not disturbing the roots leaving old soil on but gently rinsed with rain water , repotted, crossed my fingers, prayed my plant
prayer, and waited to see what would happen...
I have pitchers forming!!! the largest is the size of an okra and I believe I even see it's 'lid forming too,, It's in the center of the plant
on the first pitcher and I have several forming
YESSSS I'm excited everyday is a learning experience with these.. I'd have to say IT is teaching me
And this is the other side of the pot!
