Sphagnum and larch/pine needles VFT

Recommended Posts

Ok so a couple of pics of the 2 baby VFTs I bought at the start of the year. They've grown quite nicely in a mix of larch needles and dried sphagnum moss. I will be using pine/larch needles again in the future I think :)

they need some special treatment before use it, like rinse or boiling?

I never treated them before use. I have a pot that's 50/50 peat and pine needles outdoors all year round and they've been growing well for 3 years now.

i use the dead needles that have fallen off the tree. ive never used fresh (green) needles, but can think of no reason why they wouldnt be just as good.
