Hi, I am about to re-pot my Sarracenia, as it has long outgrown its original pot and needs a better soil mix. I have purchased some long-fibre sphagnum moss live, a bag of perlite and a bag of Sarracenia compost. My question is this; what ratio do I mix the compost and perlite and how do I go about adding the moss? I am told that the moss goes on the bottom of the pot, with the compost and perlite mix on top of the moss. Is this correct?
I am fortunate to have received some seeds from the Carnivorous Plant Society in the UK. They are "Sarracenia mixed hybrids". What is the best course of action to grow them? From reading around, it seems they would require the sunniest window and rain water. I have the impression that once an appropriate soil mix is found, all that will be needed is rain water. It sounds like the soil mix is important to their success. They are meant to take a very long time to grow, years and years. Is there nothing that can speed their growth? There are about 30 seeds, altogether.
