Davion,

Good luck with the kitty litter. Looks like your plants haven't been in it for long, so will be interesting to see the long term results... though I suspect that we won't if not successful :wink:

I suspect that it will be too wet...

Some of us have been root feeding various CPs with salt based fertilisers for years, in the absence of insects as the nitrogen source, so I would say that has shown that they are not reliant on insects for their nitrogen source... so far.

Here's-Some More INFO On NEWSPAPER Cat-LITTER so-to-Speak:


(1) 'Best'-to SOAK Pellets for @-Least 24-hours For Good Uniform 'Spread'-of- CELLULOSE-Fibres so-to-Speak.

(2) CORRECTION-On-SAND: 'Apparently' The-Sand "I"ve-Been-Buying Which-Is One-Grade or 'Sift'-UP from CYCLONE-'Doost' Is: "WILLIAM's 70WDS" Which Seemingly Stands-for QUARZITE Sand From The-WILLIAMTOWN-Area 70-Micron IN-size IE Basically 'Rhough'-SILT That's-Been: WASHED, DRIED & SIFTED (Sieved) so-to-Speak. 50 / 50 Mix From Volume of Wetted-Pellets Appears-to-be Quite-'Ideal'.

(3) You-Actually Have-to-'Sit'-Pots IN-Water ... Something "I"-Haven't 'Done' for-Years Since Switching-over to Floral-Foam Blocks IN-1999 so-to-Speak. For-SARRACENIA The 'Idea'-Level Appears to-be 1/3-UP R Standard 10-Litre / 2-Gallon Bucket so-to-Speak. FLYTRAPs Can-Be Kept IN-R-'Squat'-Pot Resting-On One Floral-Foam Brick IN Same Container as Sarras so-to-Speak ... though "I"m-Tending to Consider Buckets Sitting IN 1/3 Water with 2-3-Inches Missing From Top-of Bucket IE 'About' 2-Litres-of-Mixture Missing as 'Ideal' Generally.

As-to GROWTH: "I"ve 'Already' Noted Something Rather Interesting ... GREEN-Capes as-Well-as GREEN-Traped 'Shop'-Boughts Always 'Do'-The-Best But There-Is Also R-Major Problem With Both IRON as-Well-as CYANOPHYTA.

You'll-Get Algae Growing in The Water If The Pot-Is Laced with MANGANESE .... But-'Not'-with IRON On-Its-Own or With Iron-&-Manganese 'Together' so-"I"-'Suspect' There-Is Some Major Conflict between Calcium / Iron / Cyanophyta / Nitrogen &-CPs that Needs-to-be SORTED so-to-Speak.

Although This Past-Month Has-Been Extremely Tough-Going it-Also Has-Been Extremely Rewarding Since 'Control'-of-CP-Growth Appears to-Centre-Around The Question of IRON &-With-THIS-Medium One-'Knows' THART-Ultimately The Source of ALL-Nitrogen Is-From The-ATMOSPHERE so-to-Speak ... But 'Until' We-Can Get Cyanophyta Growing-On the-'Surface' &-Perhaps throughout This-Medium The-"Actual' Course or Flow of Nitrogen Remains UNCERTAIN as-Yet so-to-Speak.

STAY-TUNED!!! >(*U^)<

I'll be interested to see the results, though there are many variables here, dependant on how the paper pulp was produces and treated, e.g. bleached, unbleached, lignin free, suphur free, calcium or magnesium bicarbonate treated, pulp filler material and if recycled was it mill broke or post/pre-consumer, was it de-inked, what chemicals were added to the pulp, sodium silicate, sodium hydroxide, hydrogen peroxide??? etc, etc, etc...

"I"m Pretty-Rapidly Knocking-It [Newspaper-Cellulose] INTO-Shape so-to-Speak ... But-THART's 'Only' Because "I"-Done R-Lot-of-Work In-The-Past &-So Have Levels-&-Ratios Of Most of The Major Macros & Micro @-My-Finger-Tips so-to-Speak ... &-Have-Had to KILL-R-Lot of Canon-Fodder-Plants to-Obtain These Cut-OFFs so-to-Speak between Minimums &-Maximums &-General-Rules Associated with-Them so-to-Speak ...

http://a4.sphotos.ak...322682494_n.jpg

As-to Relevance ... Well the-ANSWER Lies IN-The-'Grey'-soil Which "I"m-Sure Most-of-You Have-Noticed-by Now @ PRIME CP-Sites Though It's Taken 4-Gruelling-Years On-Top of The 39 All-UP to Sift-through All The Various Potential Possibilies of Not-Only 'What'-it-Is But How to Produce-it (Rapidly) Ex-Situ so-to-Speak ... Believe-Me It-Really-Was R-Slippery-Little-Sucker &-Like 'Nailing' Jelly-to-R-Tree It-Took-Some Pretty-Niffy Backwards-Thinking &-Some Doctor-Octupus Arms IN-The-Practical-Side of Things to-Rivet All The Asides IN-Places so-to-Speak.

But-PLEASE: ... Check-The-Theory-OUT for-Yourself by Placing R-Paraffin-Candle INTO Any-of Your Peat-&-Sand Mixes &-You-'Should' Eventually Obtain Something Similar to The Above IMAGE so-to-Speak. By Placing Plants Across The-Pot Towards The-Candle You-Should-Find That-Plants Closest to-The-Candle Do-'Better' The-Closer They-Get to-The-Candle ... But IN-Particular POSITIVE Control-Plants Such-as BINATA Really-'Do' Take-OFF so-to-Speak Once-They Become Mycorrhizal ... Which'll Take-About 6-Weeks IN Unlaced-Pots But Around 5-Days IN-Laced-Ones so-to-Speak. >(*U^)< 'Just'-Placeing R-NICKEL-Coin In-R-Bucket-of-Water For-R-Few-Days Will Get-Enough Nickel-Ions INTO The-Water to-Make-R-Difference so-to-Speak ... but to-Become More-Scientific About-Things You-Will have to Kill-R-few Canon-Fodder Plants so-to-Speak ... for Afteral Even 'Salt' Is-TOXIC IN-Large-enough Quantities so-to-Speak!!!??? >(*~*)< / >(*U^)<

"I"m Pretty-Rapidly Knocking-It [Newspaper-Cellulose] INTO-Shape so-to-Speak

I'll let time be the judge of that. I've been on this earth for long enough to see plenty of short term successes turn into long term failures, including several of my own. Show me the newspaper kitty-litter grown plants in a years time and I might be convinced :wink:

My-Basic-THRUST is 'Not' to-Conserve but to-CREATE Habitat Where-&-When It-Is Needed or Required so-to-Speak Mainly-Because "I"-Have Seen Sites "I"-'Knew' as-R-Child, Over-IN Western-Australia, Detroyed On GOOGLE-EARTH as-An Adult HERE-In South-Australia ... &-Yet "I"-Cannot Find Any-Pictures Via Google-Image Search of Drosera-Gigantea Plants IN-The-Wild to-Match My-Recollections From-My-CHILDHOOD IN-Terms of Colour, Vigour (Robustness) &-Stature ...

I've detailed the method to which I am conducting my pine needle experiment and if you choose to not believe me then so be it. I fail to see why I would lie about my methods though.

I am only running the 'experiment' out of interest to myself and thought that others might be interested. I have no wish or desire to scientifically publish any results, in fact the thread in which you will have seen my post is not even my thread. A quick search of the various CP forums will see others experiments with pine needles, so it's certainly not new. I don't like being told that I'm not telling the truth and I certainly am not intending to mislead anyone. Peat is a generally accepted term in the horticultural industry and whilst its consistancy and constituents are variable in nature, very few would define it in any more detail. If we are to take this stance though, and you wish to scientifically publish your recycled paper experiment then you will need to be a lot more thorough with your definition of the material used, as 'paper' is vague and its processing can be quite variable, as I have stated above. I would think that recycled paper would be very hard to define, unless the source material comes from the same source.

Im a little confused re your experiments.
What was the green slime stuff you made and what are you using it for? Have you any sequence of pictures showing the results of its use?
I will be following your experiment with the paper pellets with interest. Will you be taking pictures at set intervals for us?
