hey guys what are your opinions on using pure lfs as a growing medium.
Would it be suitable if the greenhouse gets lots of water during the day? Keep in mind that summers can be hot and the grenhouse would really start to dry out if left for a few days
Kevnep, from my personal experience growing my plants outside (not in a green house) in the elements using just LFS led to root rot. I need a very open mix because In the summer it rains so much in Miami. My mix is LFS, Perlite, and coco husk all equal parts. The only plant i have on just LFS is my Bical. I recommend you use washed perlite to make it well draining for the green house.
I've used medium grade orchid bark in Nepenthes soil mixes and found it works well. It might be useful for you if root rot is a persistent problem. Coarse perlite would be better, but you have to use what you can get.

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
