    Dried Spagnum

    Does anyone know a good place where I can buy dried spagum moss. I bought some from my local garden centre to be used as a top dressing but in watering my plant it caused the ppm to go over 200. I'd still like to try again with spagnum as a top dressing.
  3. Yes, it clearly had something in it. Thanks for your reply
  4. Hi all, A couple of weeks ago I decided to buy some New Zealand spagnum moss as a top dressing for my sarracenia purpurea. It looked great. However I did a random water test today in its tray and the reading was around 200ppm. I have since removed the moss and watered the top of the pot about 5 times so now the reading is around 60ish ppm.

I do have a few tropicals indoors too. I was wondering whether a zerowater filter might be my answer, or should I consider a reverse osmosis unit (R
  9. I cut off all the dead pitches and even the winter leaves in spring. It allows the sun to get deeper to the rhizome. Your plant will produce better pitchers if you cut it in spring time.
  10. It completely normal for them to do that. :)
  11. linuxman is correct. Do you know the name of the species or hybrid? Sarracenia need full sun to look their best. They have unusual shaped leaves which is not very effiecient at getting sunlight so hence they need full sun (6+hours) to produce good looking pitchers.
  12. Hi everyone. I'm new here, I was wondering has anyone used Bord a Mona peat premium irish moss peat and is it safe to use on cps? It says there is no fertilizer, its from high quality Irish sphagnum moss peat and free from additives.
  13. Hi I was wondering how this worked for you? We're there any problems in the end?
