    Posted by Sheri Pitcher on July 8, 2020

    This particular soil mix was recommended for use with carnivorous plants. My plants are very happy with it.

    Generous amount of CP soil mix

    The item was nicely packaged and it was not damaged or leaking. Though one minor issue is the puff of dry perlite, that comes out when opened. Besides that would recommend buying again.

    Great soil

    Posted by Lisa on April 5, 2020

    Ordered soil and pots to transplant my sundews. Loved that the soil was premix and enough to fill the pot perfectly. I don't have a green thumb so they may this incredibly easy. My sundews are thriving in their new pots and soil. Additionally Sarracenia NW has great customer service. Sent and email about watering my sundews and they responded quickly with great information for me.
