Highland Nepenthes soil mix

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone...I will receive some highland Nepenthes in a few days and I would like to give them the best soil (I am using for now peat-perlite mix).So I start searching but there are too many compositions....and I do not know if they are good or bad!(I find one in Romaima :One liter pack of pumice, perlite, sphagnum moss, coconut chips and peat) but coco chips will be a problem if they are too salty..... What is your opinion abut the soils?

 

Best regards,

Pantelis

I just use plain long fiber sphagnum moss for all my highland neps and heliamphora. It depends on your taste though.

soils really depend on conditions as well as plants

 

  the Roraima mix seems a good one, im sure the coir will have been "washed" (you could ask Mekk, on the forum)

 

I use peat perlite coir moss & a little bit of sponge (the kind you wash yourself/car with)

 

 i get my coir from "Fertile fibre"  check ebay for orchid coco chips
