Best Nepenthes Soil

This is the BEST Nepenthes Soil available. It is a perfectly balanced mix. It feels lightweight, but snugs Nepenthes roots perfectly. The Fir Bark is not only great at retaining humidity, but it is visually appealing.


Product was well packaged and delivered in a timely manner. I thank you and my plants thank you!

Soil mixture

The soil mixture arrived well packaged along with the plants. It’s a relief having an already prepared soil for carnivorous plants since they can be very sensitive to having RO/ rain water and low nutrient balanced medium.


I receive this plant mix along with my purchase of a new pitcher plant. The mix is very well suited for Nepenthes pitchers. I am normally a cacti person but just recently started getting into the plants after one as a gift from a big box store. The difference in soil mixes is very obvious. This mix is very well thought out for what purpose it serves. No amendment needed. Comes already mixed and ready to go! I can' t thank you enough for supplying this product. Well worth the price! Product arrived very well packaged and just as described. The photo image on the wedsite does a nice size comparison to how much you would need according to pot size. A great visual for people like me who need it!
