  1. I was looking into springtails and other soil fauna that could help to boost the health of carnivorous plants. Now springtails can help to keep some fungi at bay and act as food, this got me thinking about mycorrhizal fungi. Many of the other plants I grow will do better with a fungal friend in the soil a few will not even grow without them as needed to help with the uptake of nutrients. Now most cp's have little need for root uptake of things like nitrogen so do they also lack mycorrhizal fungi. I have seen people growing cp's in many things from peat to non-peat I myself am growing in pure sphagnum moss some live some chopped and such. Even chopped up to a mulch I would think any mycorrhizal fungi would find it hard to get a foot hold where as peat is great for such things as long as not too acidic. Now the flora and fauna for a growing medium can change from one side of a field to the other and I was thinking could this explain why some growers have poor results in growing some cp's even when following the steps outlined by others that have had better results. Does anyone have info on what endophytes cp's have (I know it will change from species to species) but lacking the need for nutrient uptake by the roots may not rule out some other beneficial effect they may have.
