    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.

    The right stuff

    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.

    The soil seemed fine but now I have little fruit flies in my house. Other than that my plants are doing well.
