Hey gang,

So I recently got a really young Heli. sarracenioides from @Camden (thanks again!) and I was wondering if it'd be useful to do some light soil fertilization for it like with juvenille Sarrs. No, I'm not just asking that because of the species name. :roll:

The other question is something that I learned about from the Orchidboard people is that there's such a thing as rooting horomones. From what I gather, most people use Kelpak which its fertilizer profile (I don't know what it's exactly called) is 0-0-1. I was wondering if this could be used for some carnivorous plants when transplanting/repotting.
