This mix is a great way to re-plant your plants from Sarracenia Northwest. This way, you don't have to buy all of the individual ingredients, and saves quite a bit of money buying it this way! Plus, Sarracenia Northwest has always been my go-to for carnivorous plants and their needs. Only rated 4 stars, because I believe there is always room for improvement, not that this company needs any, they are quite perfect! Customer service is top-notch and so are their plants. Each one I have ordered have arrived in beautiful condition and are thriving at my home. With each plant purchased, they included very detailed instructions on how to care for each plant, and if you have any further questions, the growers are always more than happy to help!

I bought two bags of this to go in a bog garden I was planning to do. It was the perfect amount of soil and provides the right qualities my carnivorous plants need to stay happy and healthy!
I always try to keep a stock of this in the house. The plants I get from SNW are always so healthy that they need a repot almost every year. They grow so vigorously.
If you're on the fence considering 60/40, just do it. You'll water more but your plants will appreciate it.
Already a correct mix. Nothing to worry about and no wastse.
Perfect mix. No sticks or debris to contend with
Seems very good to me
I wanted to see what the grower recommends before trying to mix my own!
Very good service, packed good and delivered with care.
Good mixture just needed water
I was able to pot 8 bare root sarracenia plants with this mix. They are now happily growing their spring flowers. Very convenient for a quick repotting session.
I am new to carnivorous plants, and this site had a lot of information on what to do, not to do, and a great selection of products. My Sararcenia's are doing well because of this soil.
