Nice to read :-)

Under my conditions I do not make any special arrangements for N.
northiana. However, as with many other Nepenthes I observed that
though the root system is not that expanded, bigger pots mean bigger
plants - this might be related to a need of good drainage.

I grow my plants (in fact all my Nepenthes and Heliamphora!) in:

1 part high quality peat (Flora-brand) 1 part clay-beads as used for
hydroponics 3mm grain Lecaton brand 1 part Styrofoam beads "Styropor"

for bigger plants I add cork-pieces.

Bye and good growing
