Can my neighbor put a nep, ping, or drosera in a hanging coconut pot? Or will it be to salty or have to much mineral content? She's thinking of joining the group order and pretty much only has room to put it in that specific pot. Thank you in advance!

If she thinks it may be too salty or mineral-ey, soak it in rain water, drain, soak in new rain water, drain, repeat multiple times until the TDS in the water measures after soaking about what the rain water measures before. If the rain water measures 7 before for example, and 10-15 after, it should be good.
