Good deal on Turface

Cephs (can) get over 70% of their nutrients from roots, more than any other CP that I have seen peer reviewed research on... ;-)

I believe I've read one scientific study that menctioned that.

Did you mix the miracle gro with turface?
Have you tried other ferts on cephs?

Nah, I just stuck a ceph in a pot full of Miracle Grow to see what would happen.... that was probably 3 yrs ago and its still going strong.

I have tried a ceph in 100% APS, but it is too inert imho.... unless you fed it, growth stopped.
I use to fert my cephs quite a bit.... they loved it.

There are some old pics floating around, other than my one in potting soil I don't grow them anymore.

Keep it out of your Nepenthes pots if you want decent root growth..

Mikulas would respectfully disagree with that. If you sift out the smaller particles it should make a nice, airy mix.
