My nepenthes appreciates it!

After doing well for a year, my first nepenthes went downhill fast. Discolored leaves and underdeveloped pitchers. I didn’t expect the need to be repotted to be so dire and was nervous about it, but a month on in this soil and it’s recovering nicely. Will repot religiously now, and will purchase this mix again. Thank you!

Good for the plant

Great mix for the plant, but it’s way more cost effective to just make the mix yourself.

Very impressed

The soil was beautiful, soft and airy. I would definitely recommend this mixture. My wife even gave carnivorous plant nursery a sterling review on her youtube channel.
